Thieving Bastard Telford Politicians – Part 296

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

So the House of Commons have released details of MPs expenses, self-censored by the MPs themselves.  Did your thieving bastard MP make any inappropriate claims?

Here’s a couple of examples from the two thieving bastard MPs in Telford:

David Wright, thieving bastard MP for Telford, claimed over £7k for a photocopier and £300 for an accountant to do his self assessment tax returns.

Mark Pritchard, thieving bastard MP for the Wrekin, claimed 31p for an air freshner, £170 for bed and breakfast at a hotel a mile away from his house and hundreds of pounds for short taxi journey’s (how far does £4 get you in a black cab?) in London.

I have just sent Mark Pritchard an email about his expenses …

Dear Mark,

I note from your recently published expenses that you claimed about £170 for bed and breakfast at the Buckatree Hall Hotel, about a mile away from your house.  Can you please explain why you believe the cost of staying in a hotel a mile from your house is a legitimate expense incurred wholly and exclusively in carrying out your duties as an MP and should have been borne by the taxpayer?

I also note that you have claimed for various low cost items such as 31p for an air freshener and a pound for some tissues.  Could you please explain why, with a salary of £64,775, you felt unable to pay for your own tissues or a 31p air freshener?  Could you also please explain why you believe that tissues and toilet rolls are expenses incurred wholly and exclusively in carrying out your duties as an MP?  Would you not have blown your nose or wiped your backside if you weren’t an MP?

Finally, I see that you have spent hundreds of pounds on taxis for short journeys.  I understand that a £4 taxi ride in London would get you about a mile, two at the most.  I have attached a text document containing details of something that is commonly referred to as “walking” which I copied from Wikipedia.  You may wish to investigate the feasibility of taking part in this new “walking” craze as an alternative to charging the taxpayer hundreds of pounds for you to be driven a mile or two down the road.

    my thieving bastard has ripped off tons, trillions probably, stock market dabblings, dodgy security gear, suspect spendings that smack of politically motivated promotions and support.

    cheesy cock that he is

    I’ve had a response from Mark Pritchard …

    I refer you to your own MP.

    That’s it in its entirety. I’ve forwarded it to my own MP and cc’d Pritchard asking if he’s answered the questions to him instead.

    You should have let me send this, I’m in his constituency – he has more responsibility to reply to me, not that it’s stopped him ignoring my letters in the past. The ignorant twat.

    Merk, I was going to send it to you or the ginger one and ask you to send it but I forwarded it on to David Wright and cc’d Pilchard in on it asking him if he’d sent him the answers. I was waiting to see if DW would reply as a freebie because I haven’t got a spare 17 grand lying about to get his signature on a bit of paper.

    Please feel free to send the letter to Pilchard, I’d be interested to see what he’s got to say for himself.
