MPs expenses – PRimage comment

The PRimage team read with interest that Tony Blair and Gordon Brown are among a group of six MPs who have had their expenses published after a freedom of information request went unchallenged … and it makes interesting reading. For example, it shows that Blair claimed his £116 TV licence while Michael Howard and Mr Brown claimed for their council tax bills on their second home – and all six of the MPs have claimed money to cover mortgage repayments.

PRimage MD, Judy Viitanen, was especially amused to see that former deputy prime minister John (‘who ate the pies’) Prescott claimed £4,000 a year for food! What’s your view on MPs expenses? What should they be allowed to claim as legitimate expenses? Post a comment.
