More Pigs


The Daily Telegraph discloses how Tory grandees have received tens of thousands of pounds to maintain manor houses and stately homes. One claimed successfully towards the cost of a full-time housekeeper with a salary package of £14,000 a year, along with a claim including £2,000 for clearing the moat surrounding his manor house. Another was allowed to claim for a “helipad” to be maintained.

The disclosures will further alarm taxpayers and add to concern over the operation of the House of Commons fees office, which is supposed to police the parliamentary expenses system.
The claims are among the most disturbing yet exposed during the Telegraph’s investigation. Claims that are “excessive or luxurious” are not permitted under the rules. HM Revenue and Customs may wish to investigate some of the claims.

After they were approached yesterday, three Conservative MPs announced that they would be repaying money they had claimed to maintain or heat private swimming pools at their second homes.

Over the past four days, the Telegraph has published a series of articles detailing questionable expense claims made by MPs from all political parties, including members of the Cabinet and shadow cabinet.

Last night, the Metropolitan Police announced that it was considering complaints it had received about the expenses of six MPs, including Geoff Hoon, the Transport Secretary, and Alistair Darling, the Chancellor

ANTI-EXTREMIST DEMO GETS THE GO AHEAD
Police break up the earlier demonstration in Luton 11th May 2009 By

CAMPAIGNERS were last night celebrating a “victory for common sense” as council chiefs gave the nod to an anti-extremists rally.

Thousands plan to line the streets later this month in protest at Muslim hatemongers trying to split Britain.

It comes after the last rally anti-extremists tried to hold, called Reclaim The Streets was broken up by riot police.

But now officials in Luton, Beds, are working with demonstrators on plans for the march for Sunday May 24.

Police and council chiefs have feared the town’s fragile peace could be shattered after Muslim radicals hurled vile abuse at hero British soldiers returning from Iraq nine weeks ago.

The Reclaim the Streets rally protested at police and council inaction as Brit troops from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment were taunted and abused.

But campaigners are now hailing the U-turn for a proper demo to take place as a “victory for common sense
