My local MP the Rt Hon. Paul Flynn MP, is an expenses fiddler who claimed £10,000 pounds in legal defence costs off the taxpayer for a libel case he lost, a libel case he could have avoided in the first place.
He has stolen on expenses a cool £7,052 for new kitchen, as well as work back in 2006 on his kitchen coming to £1580. He has also stolen from the taxpayers £1,153 on carpets and £1,200 decoration for his London property in 2005.
He also claimed £9,629 in stamp duty and fees, yet more money off of you and me.
Then we have £1000 deposit on kitchen equipment, and back in 2006 he charged the taxpayers £1201.90 on decorating his humble abode.
Plus he has claimed back mortgage interest as well, nice work if you can get it.
He also doesn't like paying his bills, he gets you to pay them instead: water, electricity, council Tax and even his television license all paid for by you.
Other perks include: £1745 on a sofa and a chair. £189 on a bathroom cabinet.
One ravel small sofa bed beige, costing £750 quid and a vanilla pluto chair costing £995 quid.
Then we have one tv table £150, one side table £90, a dining table & four chairs both £150 quid.
One leather look manager chair coming to £64.98. Oh and £424 on a bed.
His legal expenses can be seen here and his additional cost allowance found here.
Paul Flynn has also "flipped" his home as this spreadsheet
shows. Flipping a home does not imply wrongdoing, but often the MP's use the power to bill the taxpayer for furnishing more than one property.
Newport deserves better than Paul Flynn.
Gordonomics: the true cost.
Gordonomics is the economic theory behind New Labour, that has resulted in an over complicated tax structure that costs billions to administer.
A system that pours money taken in taxes from the private sector to fund a bloated public sector that produces not a penny.
A system that has left us the last G7 nation still in recession. Led by a PM who has broken his own golden rules on borrowing, leading to a national debt rising at over £6000 pounds a second.
Using government figures we will all owe £1.1 trillion by 2010. As of March 2009 the debt was £796 billions or 55.5% of our gross domestic product.
Thanks to Gordonomics we all owe £13,678 and rising. The interest on Gordon's spending will cost us over £42 billion a year, and to pay for it all Gordon plans is more tax rises.
If a company ran its books in that manner it would either remove the chairman and put matters right, something we can not do until election time or would be declared bankrupt.
See here for more details on the UK's debt bombshell.
Gordon the man who had the plan of clearing the UK's overdraft by sticking all on the nations credit card, an any day now the shaven headed bailiffs will knocking on the nations door; all thanks to this window licking hoon.
Even the head of the US Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke said that the UK was ill-prepared to deal with the crisis in the wake of decisions made by Mr Brown when he was chancellor.
