Another Phantom Mortage.
David Chaytor (is it pronounced CHEATER?) got so mixed up between the 5 different properties he was claiming were his second home in 4 years that he "forgot" that he'd paid the mortgage of on the Westminster flat he then claimed another £13,000 of taxpayers' money for.
Of course, it was all an honest mistake and he'll pay the money back as soon as he gets back to Briatin from an all expenses paid jaunt to New York to investigate the new Bob Dylan album.
I expect that voters in Bury will completely forgive him, after all, many of them will easily have forgotten paying off their mortgages and will have £13,000 to hand to cough up in the event of any little misunderstanding.
