Yet more grasping hoons, sorry Rt. Hon. hoons.

First up security doors at your expense.Alice Mahon, who represented Halifax, West Yorkshire, from 1987 until 2005, applied for the loan in order to fit security doors and new bolts on her London second home following a burglary.

She sought permission from the fees office in 2001 to put the monthly repayments of £400 on her second home allowance, and received a total of at least £17,000 before standing down at the 2005 election.

Notes on her files show that by 2004 officials considered that the arrangement was not within the rules, but because it had been originally approved, they decided that they were obliged to continue. They also said that they had lost the original files showing that the loan repayments had been approved.

In July 2004, one official wrote: "We would not authorise a note of this sort now, but it is plausible that we could have done so in 2001."

Another replied: "I would be content to carry on with the payments."

The Cryers robbing the taxpayers.Ann Cryer, who is still the Labour MP for Keighley, billed the taxpayer for the cost of living in a Westminster flat owned by her daughter Jane Kilduff and her husband, which they later sold for a big profit. At the same time, her son John Cryer, then MP for Hornchurch, also claimed the additional costs allowance on the flat.

The expenses files show that in 2004, both Mrs Cryer and her son designated the flat in Westminster as their second home for the purposes of claiming the additional costs allowance. Mrs Cryer paid her daughter £1,200 a month in rent, while Mr Cryer claimed £400 a month for food.

Mr Cryer, who represented the Essex constituency, 15 miles from Westminster, until he lost the seat in the 2005 election, completed his second home claim forms without including an address.
When the fees office asked him to supply one, Mr Cryer wrote: "Further to our conversation of a few weeks ago, I confirm that I sometimes stay overnight at my sister's flat". He then gave the address of the flat also named by Mrs Cryer.

Jane and her husband David Kilduff had bought the Westminster flat in 2001 for £435,000. They sold it in 2006, for £635,000 – an uplift of £200,000.

Sack em all, call in the police and lets get them in a court facing justice.
