New Allowances Scandal - The Badger Exposed!

Alastair Darling, widely rumoured to be something to do with the Treasury, has been caught taking advantage of the generous fiddles available to all MPs.

He has claimed over £70,000 of tax free bunce for his million pound mansion in Edinburgh by pretending that his main residence is a fold down bunk bed in Margaret Beckett's caravan.

"It's a very cosy caravan," he said, "and Margaret makes a lovely cup of tea."

UPDATE : Jack Straw claims his main home is a bed in a dormitory at the YMCA in Bermondsey.

FURTHER UPDATE : David Blunkett claims his main residence is a kennel at Battersea Dogs Home which he shares with Sadie.

Probably one of the funniest things I've read!

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Such a shame Margaret wasn't towing her caravan on the A38 in Devon during the recent Major Snow Event.

I hope someone is keeping a list of all the troughers for publication at the next election.
