Anonymous said...

Err...but as they have no money other than what we give em, does that mean I've paid towards all that booze?.....I think it does! So where the hell is my hangover?

Mahmood Khalid 8,200.60 Paid

FFS

That is a helluva lot of Bolly, even for an MP.

Wonder what the elders would say about Khalid's bar bill. Surely it is not all alcohol..........

Could "name and shame" work sometimes?

I thought that trougher Khalid was a Muslim?
That's a lot of lemonade!

8 grand of SUBSIDISED food and drink.

In the real world what would that cost ?

Anonymous said...

I rather fear that Khalid spending £8,200 on a bar bill is another example of religious hypocrisy ~ unless this is entirely made up of soft drinks.

What is particularly of note is that this bill is £8,200 worth of 'credit' which remained unpaid for OVER 6 MONTHS!!! I can accept those down on the list for £1.60 unpaid. However, surely you would remember that you had not paid a bill of thousands?

Douglas Carswell! Paying his bar bill clearly wasn't part of "The Plan"

Mike Jecks said...

Anonymous has the main point here, guys - the bastards get their booze heavily subsidised. There is no tax on drinks served in the Palace, which is why a pint is significantly less than a pound, whisky less still. We are paying them a large salary, and then they're spending it on booze so that they can get pie-eyed at our expense before wandering into the lobbies to vote under the influence.
All MPs should be breathalized before being allowed to vote.

This says to me more about the lack of management control and procedures than the MP's themselves. Simple 30 day settlement limit or no more credit. Or even better, do not pay by x date and they cannot use the bars at all. They would soon pay up.
Is there a private club in the land that would demonstrate such a lack of control? Absolutely not!

Glad to see "irresponsibility" is a big concern Mahmood Khalid ....

Its ignorance bordering on the criminal to suggest that these people do not have additional incomes. The first name on the list stands out - she gets paid no doubt handsomely by the BBC for instance.

Are these indeed 'bar bills'? I note the heading says 'catering'.

If you want to criticise MPs I would have thought you could find plenty of legitimate complaints instead of inventing them.

Anonymous said...

This misrepresents the facts more than a little. The amounts are not just unpaid 'bar bills' - they will also include catering for events. So for example, if an MP agrees to book a room in parliament for an NGO to hold an event and the event is catered, the costs will appear on the MP's tab. Which may explain the high amounts on some individual accounts. But don't let facts get in the way of a bit of scandal eh?

The scandal is the failure to pay the bills in proper time, not whether they were for alcohol, lemonade or dinner parties. On the last category, I wonder how many of these functions have repaid the MP concerned, before the MP pays the bill?
The other part of the scandal is that this consumption is heavily subsidised.

Paul Keetch got through one load of food and booze after his heart scare!
