More on Parliamentary Snouts in the trough?

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority  (IPSA) have an interesting website, its interactive and shows the expenses claimed by each of our local MPs.

I see in the period 2012/13 Healey is claiming for a Virgin media bundle TV, Broadband etc at £40.15 a month.

So pleased that my tax pounds are keeping this individual happy watching his favourite programmes, well at least he`s not spending our money on property development!

Our  man of the people and king of the trough MacShame even claimed £3.50 in travel costs for a journey in his constituency.

Take a look but not on a full stomach.

  1. WTF, my MP is claiming for a TV set?

    OK, as a Rovrum Laybah Bruvva wiv da interests of his constituents at heart, I’m sure he’ll soon be standing up in Da Houses-o-Pee and announcing that my elderly WWII vet Mom and her generation can all claim for a TV set for their modest pensioner accommodations … won’t he?

  2. Just for clarity : Dennis Sinner expenses 2010/11. £9,478.95
    2011/12. £10,838.21
    Not sure where the 35k comes in for the girlfriend

    John Healey. Expenses 2010/11. £47,403.74
    2011/12. £54,842.42

    Dennis Macshane. Expenses. 2010/11. £32,955.82
    2011/12 £37,919.03

    Kevin Barron. Expenses. 2010/11. £26,168.17
    2011/12. £32,955.21

    Would seem to me that Dennis Skinner is the better value for money.
