A second member of the MPs' standards body is defending his expenses claims after reports he "flipped" two homes.
Labour's Andrew Dismore, who represents a north London seat about 10 miles from Parliament, claimed £34,000 on a second home in west London between 2001-2003.
The Daily Telegraph said he then made second home claims on his Hendon flat, amounting to £31,000 from 2003-2009.
What a fucking surprise. No, really.
The Daily Telegraph says he owned the Notting Hill flat with his partner, who ran her homeopathy surgery from the property, and designated it with the Commons fees office as his second home, on which he was allowed to claim expenses.
This really says it all. How can homeopathy, which has been proven as pseudoscience and quackery on occasions far too many to mention, have a "surgery"? By using this term the BBC are just giving it credibility.
He said: "It was the right thing to do to designate the Hendon property as the second home and the London property as the main home."
You can tell he's a Labour MP can't you - telling us what we should be thinking is the right thing. You're not allowed your own opinion under a Labour government, proles.
He added: "The Hendon property was cheaper to run, which was also an important consideration to me, and my claims progressively and rapidly reduced year on year since then.
"Although I could have claimed more I did not do so."
How very noble of you Andrew. You grasping cunt.
He looks like a cunt too:
You can almost smell the arrogance.
