Robbing the tax payers

It seems that while the government is applying the squeeze in effort to get blood out of a stone, or, to squeeze every penny they can from the general public (well the poorer section anyway), there are at least four mps taking the proverbial p*ss.

One such is Linda Riordan mp. She is pocketing 19,000 pound per year tax payer's money by renting out her second home which is paid for from tax payer's money while claiming thousands of pounds to rent a third home for herself. And it's all permitted under the new 'tougher' regime imposed after the recent expenses scandal.

Isn't this why John Bercow is trying to block the latest round of revelations? Apparently there may be quite a few MP's renting a flat off another MP whilst paying another MP to have theirs....

 

It is a big con and those responsible should be fined and jailed for theft or fraud

If these people were claiming housing benefit “Rent Swapping” like this would be deemed to be benefit fraud, it is what welfare fraud investigators would call a “contrived tenancy” punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment. We really have reached an "us and them" situation where they are only interested in screwing the maximum amount of money out of us that they can while at the same time doing the minimum necessary to keep their positions.
