A Tory MP has apologised for a BBC interview in which he said critics of his expenses claims were simply "jealous" of his country house.
In an interview with Radio 4's The World At One on Wednesday, Mr Steen suggested his critics were envious because he lived in a large house that resembled Royal residence Balmoral, and had trees in the grounds that needed lopping.
During the interview, the 69-year-old former barrister claimed ministers had "mucked up the system" by introducing the Freedom of Information Act. He added: "What right does the public have to interfere with my private life? None."
Listen to the fucking cunt:
Fuck you, Steen, you arrogant, lofty cunt. You'll fucking get yours yet. Christ allmighty, your sense of entitlement just fucking beggars belief. How dare you treat the public with such disdain? I think you even top Jackboots for the contempt you hold for the people who put you in a position to do this.
