Paul Flynn - Newport deserves better than him

Just been having a look through Paul Flynn MP's expenses, Paul who was sued for libel and had to pay Endowment Justice 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?

Now he claimed £10k for professional fees in Nov 2005 - was this for the solicitor in the libel action? Yes it looks like it was!
Flynn why should we have to pay for your libel case? height="500" width="100%" > value="http://d.scribd.com/ScribdViewer.swf?document_id=16561869&access_key=key-1hsctur4478wmfayns5y&page=1&version=1&viewMode=">
Flynn claimed expenses on the solicitor fees!

He spends in 2004 around £340 quid a month on food. Although he food bill drops in 2005 - had a relative died?

He also gets nectar points for his mobile phone paid for by the taxpayer - surely these should go to the taxpayer not be seen as an extra perk.

His NTL bill 25th Oct 2004 includes £17 for "entertainment services" actually this is every month. Are we doing a Mr Jacqui Smith and getting a few "adult services"? I can't see any claims for blue pills so most likely not, but if he doesn't need them I shall say well done Mr Flynn managing to keep things up at his advanced age!
2 laser copies 15.04.04 and 15.03.04. for £349.00 each - Oh he also billed us for a printer as well a snip at £379.99.

Also thanks to the Telegraph we know that he stole "within the rules" a cool £7,052 for new kitchen, as well as work back in 2006 on his kitchen coming to £1580, a cool £1,153 on carpets and £1,200 decoration for his London property in 2005.
Then he sold this and moved to a new £275,000 flat. He also claimed £9,629 in stamp duty and fees.

Then we have £1000 deposit on kitchen equipment, charged to the taxpayer. In 2006 he charged the taxpayers £1201.90 on decorating his humble abode. Would that we could get decorating done for nothing and have someone else pick up the tab!

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 although the good thing is that at his advanced age he will soon qualify for a free telly licence!

Also £1745 on a sofa and a chair, well he is very very old bless him!

£189 on a bathroom cabinet. Somewhere to store all his pills.

One ravel small sofa bed beige, costing £750 quid and a vanilla pluto chair costing £995 quid. Well it is natural wood.
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

He also ordered Mac OS X version 10.4 Tiger @ £89.00 - he could have used Linux which is free but still at least its not Windows.

£424 on a bed for his aged corpse.

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.

There is probably more but due to his bad handwriting its hard to make out.

His blog writing is pretty poor too. Littered with grammatical and spelling mistakes. One would think that he would check before publishing.

Oh yeah, and he's a hysterical healthist prick too. In favour of legalising drugs, hates the pharma industries ... yet wants smokers put down and believes pharma-funded anti-tobacco propaganda to the letter. He sees no hypocrisy in this stance whatsoever.

This is not allowed as it was nt an essential part of his WORK as an MP. You could, as a constituent, send him an FOI request to find out what the money was for, and also, it should be listed what it was for anyway at this amount. Go through his claims and it should say, otherwise there is something dodgy.

You should complain and see if he gets in shit, and I suspect he will. I would do too but for I am not in his constituency.
