The Mail on Sunday has a piece that Alistair Darling has also in the past claimed a second house allowance whilst lodging with a friend. The friend in this case, is Lord Moonie who was last month implicated by the Sunday Times for offering influence in the legislative process in exchange for cash.
This is another example that the people whom form our government showing their contempt for the tax payers that pays their wages.
We can conclude from the efforts of this Labour government to cover up expense claims, and by the continued revelations of their profiteering that they will not be tightening the rules whilst they can still draw upon so much of our money.
I look forward to hearing Conservative proposals to clean up the rules and the system.
