Second home claims

Just a quick update on the most recent expenses claims publication.

I’ve looked through about 39 MPs so far and claims are far lower than in previous periods.

That’s expected because these claims relate to the six months after the scandal broke – meaning many MPs were shocked into putting the brakes on their spending.

But eight of those MPs have actually claimed absolutely nothing – that is £0 for the cost of a second home from July to December 2009.

Which begs the question; if they could claim £0 for that six month period why were they claiming money before?

To be fair, if i was entitled to claim for something, i would. Purely because i was entitled too. Its the things that they are not entitled to claim for, and still do that gets my back up.
