Just read on Teletext that the Speaker of the House has claimed £700,00 of tax payers money to refurbish his home. £150k on furniture, £190k on air conditioning, £13k on art & over £300k on building refurbishments. This government is a joke!! Whilst we all struggle to pay the monthly bills, these corrupt political parasites just take the proverbial p*ss! I expect the Police will look into this, find he's a personal friend of the Commissioner and drop the case - after spending £10 million on the investigation of course.
