Smith's husband sorry over films

The Home Secretary's husband has said sorry for embarrassing his wife after two adult films were viewed at their home, then claimed for on expenses.

Richard Timney, who is also Jacqui Smith's parliamentary aide, said he understood why people might be angry.

Ms Smith said she "mistakenly" claimed for a TV package when billing for a web connection and would repay the cash.

its no wonder they are reluctant for an enquiry into their expenses - it completely takes the proverbial

Has anyone read Animal Farm

Sense of proportion is necessary..

BBC
"I can fully understand why people might be angry and offended by this.

"Quite obviously a claim should never have been made for these films, and as you know that money is being paid back."

BBC political correspondent, Gary O'Donoghue, said a source told him Ms Smith was "livid and shocked" when she found out about the films.

He said he was told Ms Smith was not at home when they were viewed and said she had no intention of resigning over the matter.

Mr O'Donoghue said he was told Ms Smith had given her husband a "real ear-bashing".

If you don't like, run for Parliament. I find it quite funny! After all, who doesn't have the odd freebie from work or their partners work?

I think that it is important to note that this was a mistake, it would be different if they set out on purpose to claim for this item. Would we be having the same discussion if a MP's child had made calls to a friend and these had accidently been claimed for as an itemised bill wasn't 100% checked?

Why Dont We Have An Mp Expenses Basket Like The Shopping Comparison Baskets The Govt Do And See Whats In It. Or Perhaps Like The Asda And Tescos Ads We Could Just Have The Arrows For The Mps And Then We Can See Who Is Value For Money.... Fair Is Fair, They Judge Us We Judge Them.

It's ok, the £10 is being paid back, it was a mistake. A further £11 will be paid back for other films mistakenly claimed.

If you're pzzed, I hope you weren't driving!

Good luck raising money for the Hospice.

As for knowing the right people or kissing butts, I would think intelligence, determination and giving a damn would be more important qualities. She was an evil witch, but I doubt Thatcher ever kissed a butt and she got to the top.

Would you rather pay £7.10 for someone elses?

Well many people in the UK seem to dislike reporting on benefit cheats, as per a few threads on here recently "it's not my job", so you're always limited by how many people you can throw at that. Every country in every world with a benefits system has people that cheat it, we are not alone.

Does anybody know what film it was?

No, I would rather the large amounts I pay in tax and NI mean that I shouldnt have to pay for medicine when it is needed.

It's a fair point.

Suppose you could also be greatful that you have a job and live in a country with a free health service. If you lost your job tomorrow and had an acccident, you'd be taken care of, hell of a lot of people in the world are not so fortunate.

I am grateful as I have in life what I want and what I have earnt.

There is the other side of me that rages when I see my close friends and colleagues being made redundant who have always worked and always wanted to. They then have to join the unemployed and they do not get any preferential benefits after paying into the system for so long.

I have to say, I heard this on the radio earlier today. My first thoughts were "oh dear, more sleaze", then it dawned on me. If I tried to claim on my expenses for this and got caught out, I would face a summary dismissal and I wouldnt have a leg to stand on. Fraud is a serious offence - particularly with the fraud is being committed against the UK Tax man and the taxes we pay to keep these leeches.
#21
claiming for bath plugs and butt plugs , this lot make thatcher look good :x
#22
we should be complaining about those highly paid accountants not doing their jobs in saying no to the expenses claims. fine the politicians times 10 and then we see the end to it, as they will never vote to sack themselves for fraud will they.

why cant we have one politicians london accomodation base , like the nurses blocks, and let them all use that, hell of a lot cheaper then these homes.

if that didnt suit buy their own....
#23
This is a question for those who know. I don't know the answer. Can somebody still be an MP if fraud has been proven?
Surely they need to take steps to be above suspicion. It amazes me that there are so many of these types of incidents.
#24
Funny. I always thought MPs were w##kers. Turns out it's their husbands that are the w##kers.
#25
I was wondering just what I would spend £95,000 a year on if all of my living expenses were already taken care of. (Food, utilities, housing costs, house maintenance, etc, etc, etc). One of the latest cases under investigation has 'suggested' that this is what could be occuring. Just where does that sort of money end up if you dont need it to live on. The mind boggles.
