Top Corrupt MPs

In at Number 1, Elliot Morley has been suspended from the parliamentary Labour Party “until further notice” following allegations he claimed £16,000 for a non-existent mortgage.

2 Jacqui Smith who described a room in her sister’s house as her main residence, and

7 Margaret Moran spent £22,500 of tax payers’ money treating dry rot at her and her husband’s seaside house a hundred miles from her constituency days after switching her second home there.

8 David Clelland who tried to block disclosure of MPs’ second-home spending, claimed on expenses for the cost of “buying out” his partner’s £45,000 stake in his London flat.

9 agriculture minister, and David Chaytor carried on claiming £13,000 mortgage interest payments despite the mortgages having been completely paid

10 Ian McCartney, the former Labour Party chairman, spent £16,000 furnishing and decorating his designated second home but paid the money back two years later

And for the Tories

1 Andrew MacKay, who blatantly deprived the taxpayer by claiming, with his MP wife, two sets of second home allowances for different properties

2 Tory MP Douglas Hogg announced that he will repay £2,200 in after admitting the clearing of his moat was “not positively excluded” from a claim.

3 John Maples, Tory deputy chairman with responsibility for candidates, who declared his private members’ club as his main home, allowing him to spend money on his second home.

4 Vandals carved a pound sign in the lawn of Tory MP Alan Duncan, who claimed over £4,000 for gardening!

5 Julian Lewis, a shadow minister, asked if he could claim £6,000 in expenses for a wooden floor at his second home but Commons officials ruled that the spending “could be seen as extravagant”

6 Former shadow defence secretary Michael Ancram claimed almost £100 for the repair of a swimming pool boiler but said he had made a “genuine mistake” and would repay the money.

7 James Arbuthnot, chairman of the Commons defence select committee, had claimed £1,471 for garden and swimming pool costs. He has agreed to repay the swimming pool expenses.

8 former cabinet minister Douglas Hogg, MP for Sleaford and North Hykeham, submitted claims for more than £2,000 to clear a moat around his estate and £14,500 for a housekeeper.

Last but not least Liberals

1 Andrew George claimed expenses on £300,000 flat ‘used as a bolt-hole by his model daughter’

2 Nick Clegg, the party leader, claimed the maximum possible on his second home allowance as well as exceeded his budget by more than £100 – even while calling for a reform of the system.

3 Former leader Sir Menzies Campbell hired an interior designer to refurbish his flat in central London, spending nearly £10,000 of taxpayers’ money on scatter cushions, a king-sized bed and a flat screen television.

4 Chris Huhne, the party’s home affairs spokesman, claimed for a £119 trouser press which was delivered to his main home rather than his designated second address. He also claimed for fluffy dusters and the upkeep of his ‘pergola cross beam’, a piece of garden apparatus.

5 Lembit Opik charged taxpayers for a £40 court summons he received for the non-payment of his council tax and £2,499 for a TV – the TV claim was rejected as ‘too expensive’.

6 Treasury spokeswoman Julia Goldsworthy bought a leather rocking chair in a thousand-pound spending spee just days before the second homes allowance deadline passed.
