    even worse than dole cheats....................

    i know its been going on for ages - but now someone - somewhere has to be taken into court

    i - like many others on here have to pay full council tax

    jack straw should be done for fraud -

    They include a claim for £6,500 made by Gordon Brown to pay his brother for a cleaner for his Westminster flat.

    Justice Secretary Jack Straw received a 50% discount on the council tax on his second home, but claimed the full sum.

    deano - whrn someone claims benefits for a bad back - they may have back pain but they say its worse - so they can claim - but a lot end up in court - theyre playing the system but still get done when found out

    Its the same old story ... one set of rules for the proles and an entirely different criteria for those that make up the rules.:x

    When tories were scamming when they were in power, Gordon brown said they should be sacked and the party resign.
    Shame he's not so keen now.

    I don't care if this is technically within the rules, this sort of thing is a scam....and its our money they are scamming! BAS***ds !

    Hate to see anyone abusing the system.

    Politicians are parasites...what more do you expect from them?

    Exactly. Just scrap the expenses system and give them a pay raise.

    don't you only get a 50% discount on council tax if the house is classed as unoccupied?

    and if so, is he claiming for mortgage payments on a house he isn't using?

    Supermod

    At least these "cheats" are working cheats.

    I can't wait till the summer. It is going to be great when all their expenses comes out and we get to learn what some of them have been getting up to. Supposedly several Labour MPs are worried as their bedtime 'shenanigans' will be publicised.

    To be honest I'm quite happy that they r4ped the system if it means we see some of them getting publicly humiliated and any chance of a career in politics completely blown away. It is going to be AWESOME, and well worth the thousands of pounds of our money that they have claimed immorally
