NO!  You cannot be Chancellor Of The Exchequer, guardian and keeper of the nation’s purse and play fast and loose, anything less than perfection, with your expenses!

“It would be quite wrong to claim on two homes at the same time”.  Those are your words but that is exactly what you did.  The fact that you have repaid around £700 of the service charge is cast iron proof.  It is not good enough for any MP, certainly not you, to fail to manage your affairs in such a way that an advance payment such as this would not be identified and repaid in a timely manner.

You fall far short of the standard that we are entitled to expect of an occupant of your office.

Let us say that this was a housing benefit claim and you were a poorly educated, perhaps only semi-literate individual.  If you had duped two different local authorities as you moved between them and “forgotten” or “overlooked” the money you had been paid in advance, made such a “mistake”, then you would be facing interviews under caution and quite possibly prosecution.

But you are Chancellor of The Exchequer!  This is only one of the difficult questions that you have to answer about your integrity.  What about the flipping?  What about claiming for tax advice on expenses?

To begin with, you should be sacked.  Then there should be a police investigation.

The double standards that you pompous, self-important politicans live by are almost beyond belief.  As each day passes and you grub around in the muck of your own behaviour, desperately trying to justify and excuse your avarice, greed and fraud, so every last vestige of any dignity or public respect evaporates – and you still don’t get it!

Jim Knight – The Scumbag Thief Of Dorset

So I learned today that my own MP, Jim Knight, the Schools Minister, has his snout in the trough too.

He is one of several MPs who have claimed and been paid for tax advice from Dennis Bates, ex-Inland Revenue employee and wife of Labour MP, Meg Munn.  Mr Bates’ bill to Jim Knight explicitly stated “professional services in connection with your personal tax affairs”.

No reasonable person can believe that claiming such an expense is legitimate.  I have therefore written today to the Chief Constable of Dorset, Martin Baker, making a complaint of dishonesty.  I take no pleasure in this.  I regard it as my duty.

Jim Knight states on his own website on the subject of MPs expenses: “…more serious abuses must be referred to the police and action taken that matches any other employment and any other citizen…”

Let us see what happens.

Alistair Darling And The Rest – Liars, Cheats And Thieves

What exactly is it that entitles cabinet ministers to have their accountants’ fees paid for by the taxpayer?

All nine ministers must be sacked and the police brought in to investigate.  There is not the slightest excuse for this blatant thievery.

This is perhaps the most disgraceful episode of all.  While you can argue (well you can try)  that duck houses and food bills have something to do with a second home which is necessitated by Parliamentary duties, claiming your accountants fees on expenses is nothing short of cheating the taxpayer.

Alistair Darling, Jacqui Smith, Hazel Blears, David Miliband, James Purnell, Douglas Alexander, Geoff Hoon and Hilary Benn – you are liars, cheats and thieves.  You should all be behind bars.
