Paul Flynn MP - Newport deserves better - Expenses

My ancient libel case losing MP is getting very confused.

One the one hand he condemns the Telegraph for exposing MP expenses, then in the same article will cherry pick some Tory MP's expenses to raise an "important question"

He lays in Cameron on his read my shyte weblog. Fair enough, my view is a plague on all their houses, and their second homes.

But, lets have some answers from the Rt Hon. Paul Flynn with regards his own expenses.

When he was sued by Endowment Justice paid them damages of 36K, did he use his own funds for this or public funds? Also if he used his own money did he claim that back off of the taxpayer?

Thanks to the Telegraph we know that he stole "within the rules" a cool £7,052 for new kitchen, £1,153 on carpets and £1,200 decoration for his London property in 2005, before selling it and moving to a new £275,000 flat. He also claimed £9,629 in stamp duty and fees.

Also £16,958.00 2nd home allowance, £13,913.00 on office costs, £92,902.00 staffing costs, £202.00 central stationary, £510.00 stationary & postage. £1,209.00 IT provision, £7,171.00 on communications, £8,096.00 travel, £140,961.00 total.

He also claimed back mortgage interest of £215.00, claimed back water utilities of £26.07, electricity £27,00, council Tax £89.33, television service £16.50.

So whilst workers (if they are still lucky enough to have a job) have to pay their own council tax, their own tv services, their own travel, their own electric bills our MP gets all that gratis off of the hard working taxpayers.

Sadly they are not MP's and so unable to steal from the public purse.

So lets see £64K a year wages for doing - in my view a poor job - and £140K in expenses on top of that. Nice work if you can get it.
