These is something wrong with our society when DCAs, Banks, MPs, Private Parking Companies etc. can do what they do.

 

Oh what a mess.

Its amazing that my MP's food bill is £400 each month.

 

I wonder if she has the same meal each day each week.

 

I think I'll write and ask!

Also write to the place they do all there food shopping and ask them how they managed to keep all the prices the same for so long, and can we shop there too:D.


 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

Mine only quaffs £300, yours must shop at M&S! although maybe North/South devide. Why oh why has mine got (And on a very quick glimpse) £55 for a mini grill under repairs and insurance?

 

I am soo looking forward to analysing this, maybe I'll get the full version of my Telegraph contact, lmao.

 

I have the email already sat in my inbox to reply to, the morra is devoted to it.

Mine seems more reasonable with food averaging around the £180 mark. However she pays £45 per month for a mobile phone tariff which includes 400 minutes and 50 texts... they must have seen her coming!

Mine has stopped claiming £300 food the minute Council tax entered the equasion? only ever claimed £200 since then? Why are the figures so bang on the penny...petty maybe.

 

I think mine has been relatively well behaved, aside from the obvious 'rounding up' and I'm not gonna chuck my toys out over that.

 

I am still gonna get everything available digested the 'morra.

 

Baz, get her on 3 lmao

Can I ask what your MP's renting costs are? Mine is charging £1615.25 PCM.... maybe £400 is OK, but I'd like to compare it, London aint chep!

Richard Ottoway, Croydon Sth, has steadfastly refused to tell us what he was spending our money on. No wonder, I'd be embarrassed too to be seen as such a terrible moneysaver!!!

 

Handsfree kit for car: £250! :shock:

Newspaper delivery: £50 Why am I paying for this exactly?

£240 on food, and yes, £40 on light bulbs. £50 on a toaster, and there is maintenance on something mysterious which contains belts and filters and is bloody expensive. Mortgage payment: £430. Repairs to roof, boiler, shower (every month or so, it would seem), and the list goes on and on...

 

Want to know the funny thing? Mr Ottoway's home from home is further away from Westminster than his constituency one, but then Bletchingey is a lot more attractive than Croydon... :rolleyes:

I was wrong about the mini grill, it was actually under 'other' but the initial claim was scribbled out, and went into another section....it was then scribbled out again with blacked-out bits because of an issue worth £5, she then altered the totals at the bottom pratically begging them not to forget the extra fiver.... hard times!

 

Still, so far in my MP may be an angel....I haven't clicked on the other 5 or 6 links yet.

 

As a complete aside, I find it interesting that I now know each 'high gloss' leaflet costs 5.6p lol (maybe the gloss finish makes the crap easier on the eye.....and helps it get into landfil quicker?) 44,000 is also too low for her constituency. 30,859 were delivered by RM at the chep rate of 4.8p making those leaflets cost 10.4p each which 90% of which (guess, and you should see the communal area here) goes unread. Plus you can't wipe your crease on the glossy stuff. :p

 

I guess the other 13,000 or so are hand dropped by my MP and workforce in the more affluent areas? Not having a go here, I'm just a trainspotter when it comes to this stuff! Still, it grates a bit even then...£4K to promote her still sucks.... and that is only one campaign.... I honestly thought that kind of stuff wasn't paid for by the taxpayer.

About Bl**&y time!!!

 

They keep saying its within the rules but they made the rules!!! I wonder how long the fraud squad and Inland Revenue would hold back if The General Medical Council or the Legal Bar wrote its own rules for whats allowable in an expense claim?

 

Its the house of commons... the house of common people... they are NOT above the law which includes the Inland Revenue!!!

 

(makes a mental note to write to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors..... :rolleyes::D)

£400 is the limit for monthly food allowances of what they're allowed to claim with no receipts:mad::eek:..........for all of those who've had to put in ex's claims for work, mucking around with recepits for pence, making sure everything is accurate to the last penny................they didn't need to produce recepits for anything less than £250!!!
