I'll give you a clue. Bhut bhut ding ding move along da bus..
The most expensive MP in Britain is Shahid Malik of Dewsbury. Malik has claimed more than £185,000 in travel, housing, staff and other things funded by the British taxpayer.
Examples from Malik’s astronomical claim are £95,000 on staff wages and £21,266 on postage costs. The MP says that his higher costs stem from opening a new, and larger, constituency office and “regular” writing to constituents.
The total in allowances for 2006-7 came to £86.9 million, a rise on last year’s figure of £80.9 million.
MPs can claim unlimited first class rail travel (why don’t they have to travel in the overcrowded conditions expected of those who pay their wages, you could bet then that something would be done about the state of our railways!) They can also claim three trips a year to Europe.
Also in the local news spotlight are husband and wife team Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper. Last year they claimed £32,000 in allowances for their London home - separate claims on the same house in London. The MPs can get their TV licence paid, their groceries paid for, furniture and electrical goods bought - that must please the many British pensioners who are living on the breadline and who cannot afford to heat their homes in winter.
Lib Dem MP Nick Harvey said that British taxpayers got “excellent value for money” from their MPs. What a pity that some of this money doesn’t go into something truly worthy, such as the NHS, rather than keeping a select few in luxury!
Oh deary bloody clever dickie me in the wrong job mate.
