Klepturition 5

OK, so building maintenance costs money, but not only does this sound excessive, No 10 is extraordinarily reticent about telling us what the money was spent on. This is the "new" Cameronian politics ... pay up and shut up.

Speaking of which, on Lord Hanningfield being found guilty of expenses fraud, we now learn that he had said he felt entitled to claim the allowance as he needed to go home to look after his dog, who he described as his closest friend. As he left the court he said: "I'm devastated but I have no regrets. I did nothing wrong".

This is another one who doesn't get it.
