See our MP is moaning about "warmfront" contractors "profiteering"; perhaps these cowboys have learnt a thing or two by watching MPs with their expenses?! :wink:

I see that an MPs committee (chaired by that champion trougher Mr Speaker) is going to change the rules in the Green Book regarding expenses that MPs can claim for accomodation in the capital, nicely letting a whole host of their fellows off the hook. Nice to be able to write your own contract of employment eh!! :wink::wink:

I see from the Times that the legal fraternity have their snouts well in the NHS trough :

 

"Bertie Leigh, a lawyer who defends the NHS in litigation cases, said he regards many of the cases he sees as a ?buccaneering attack on the funds of the NHS?.

 

In one case involving Barking, Havering & Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust, a legal firm claimed nearly ?78,000 in costs and fees, having won just ?7,000 for a female patient. A Liverpool firm submitted a legal bill for ?4.4m for a single case.

 

The figures for 2007-8 show that more than one in four NHS trusts are paying out more in legal costs than in damages. The clinical negligence scheme paid ?264m in compensation in 2007-8 of which ?90m was in claimants? fees.

 

Compensation lawyers say the success fees help to cover the cost of fighting cases they lose. "

And that's where a lot of the extra money that Nu Labor have put into the NHS. We have Managers wages, Pensions and now legal fees!!

 

No doubt someone somewhere will come up with a formula to prove that in the last Tory government, more actually went on patient care than it does today because of all the money they have to give away these days to malingerers and scallys. Now would that upset Sgt Bilko!?

Daily Mail...and widely reported elsewhere:

 

Snouts and trotters well in the trough...b...dy disgrace!

made even worse by the fact that he and his wife have a joint income of ?300,000+ ( both are state sector employees as well)

 

Another Labour Minister has been caught out in an expenses scandal after effectively admitting he had been wrong to claim ?60,000 of taxpayers' money for a property which is his parents' main home - not his.

Employment Minister Tony McNulty performed a dramatic U-turn and announced he had stopped claiming the controversial MPs' second-home allowance after being challenged by The Mail on Sunday.

Even more astonishingly, he said that 133 MPs who, like him, live within 60 miles of Westminster should be banned from getting the ?24,000-a-year handout.

Mr McNulty and his wife, chief schools inspector Christine Gilbert, have a combined annual income of a third of a million pounds and between them own two London homes worth ?1.2million.

They live together in a house she owns just three miles from Westminster. Yet he has been claiming up to ?14,000 a year in parliamentary expenses to help pay for the second house in Harrow where his parents live, 11 miles from the Commons.

The MP has been able to obtain the money because the house he owns is in his Harrow constituency and so qualifies him for the secondhome allowance. Initially, when Mr McNulty was approached by this newspaper on Friday he pointed out: 'It is all within the rules.'

 

But later, he changed his tune. When it was put to him, 'Do you accept it all looks very odd?', he replied: 'I do.'

He then compared his own unconvincing defence with that made by Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials, who said they were 'only obeying orders'.

'It's not against the rules - though I suppose you might say that is the Nuremberg defence,' he observed.

They're all at it, red, blue, yellow, green etc.etc. They need sacking and banishing to one of the many small islands along with all the criminals they seem intent on releasing back into society. :wink::wink:

From the Northampton Chronicle and Echo:

 

Anti Fraud Minister (sic) Tony McNulty said: "Benefit thieves have to understand that they will not get away with it.

 

"Working together with local authorities and the police we have a strong range of powers to investigate and with the support of the public we bring benefit thieves to justice.

 

"When people commit benefit theft, they face imprisonment, fines and other penalties. We will also make sure they pay back the money they have stolen from the taxpayer and seek to ensure any proceeds from their crime are confiscated too."

 

 

One rule for them and another for the plebs. 8)8)

So between them, the two Bliar babes from Warrington collect a staggering ?671,000.00

 

Now call me cynical, but exactly what do they do for that amount of money? We have one who seems to always be in the papers opening school fetes and things (something I though t we had mayor Graham for) and the other one; who franckly resembles the Scarlet Pimpernel because I can't remember the last time I heard about something she had done

 

What a farce and a downright pocket-lining pair of rip off merchants they are....... Roll on the election when we can vote them out......................and then put another pair of pocket liners in their places!!

Quite how Baroness Uddin qualifies for a 4 bed villa destined for low income key workers from Spitalfield Housing Association is open to Question.

 

Possibly one of the following may be able to supply the answer:-

 

* Ala Uddin - Vice-Chair

 

* Faruque Uddin - Housing Officer

 

* Abdus Uddin - Assistant Maintenance Officer

 

of Spitalfields Housing Association.

 

It's not what you know............................................

why can't we just get a plane together and get the SAS to round them all up in the middle of the night, hoods on heads, and let them wake up back in pakistan or wherever and just refuse to let them come back here again?

 

Sod their human rites; they are thieveing scum and should be kicked out
