So this guy gets a house from parliament: yes, UK MP’s are allowed to live in a tax payer paid house. NL MP’s are too.
He likes his garden, so he does it up – on tax payer’s expenses. Because he gets them as per the law. He owns ducks, so he makes an island for them. Not only will it look nice, it’ll protect them from foxes. This costs £1,645. Because the media hits it with ‘duck island’ he’s forced to resign.
Another cited case here is this guy who made an administrative error on which property he was collecting morgage interest from. The amount doesn’t make a difference, but the location on the form does. Up in arms! As though no-one else ever makes a mistake or even properly cares about their administration.
This witch hunt has got to stop!
