Tory MP Billed Taxpayers £57,000 – For His Own Flat

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, along come more revelations about the greed of our MPs.

A prime example is the millionaire Brian Binley, MP for Northhampton South. He charged taxpaye£1,500 a month for over three years, even after being told these claims were unacceptable and a clear breach of the rules.

Commons officials reprimanded Mr Binley in April 2006, but he appealed to the then Commons Speaker, Michael Martin, who failed to do anything until this April.

By paying himself rent, Mr Binley has made a nice fat profit.

He’s quite a greedy chap, is Binley. When he first entered the Commons, back in 2005, he claimed the ‘second homes’  allowance for staying in the expensive and luxurious Carlton Club.

Pitiful, isn’t it?
