in the upcoming elections for MEPs - just say no!

by all accounts (unaudited, of course) they're really takin' the pss.

the EUs accounts have been raked into several times, but the official, financial accounts for the EU have not been signed off for the last 14 yrs

there's the recent stories that if you play it right, you could clear 1m in your 5 yr stint 'serving' in europe, according to the press - i can quite believe it

the fact that the major fire in the EU headquarters was caused by a british MEP burning their receipts(some of which do not even have to have existed in the first place) in a panic, are unconfirmed at the moment......

Had a look at www.parliament.uk and found that for 2004 my MP, John Robertson, has claimed 250 most months and listed it as "Cash in Hand", comes in at 1750

looks like it was questioned but paid in October and knocked back as not allowed in November - I'll bet he hasn't paid it back either

He's also claimed 300 a month for food, and it shows, looks like he hasn't missed many meals
sputnik

mine claimed two hunner quid for a pen and nearly four hunner for a camera.he claimed the camera was to take photos for to keep his constituents up to date on his website,the pen he says was a really good fountain pen.he got a letter stating that he had maxed out his office expenses for the year.bet the pen is back in the shop and he is using one oot the bookies noo.

MPs expenses revealed but truth isn't there in . . . black and white (Evening Times)

THE full extent of Westminster's culture of secrecy was yesterday laid bare
as four years of MPs' expenses were finally published - but heavily censored
in an ocean of black ink.


Scotland's 59 MPs have claimed a total of 25,454,624 in allowances since
2005, with 48 of them billing the taxpayer for more than 400,000 each.

Critics pointed out that the severely-edited disclosure of the expense claims
showed how the worst abuses of taxpayers' money would never have come
to light without the full version having been leaked and published.

Last night it emerged that Labour's Jim Devine, the MP for Livingston who was
deselected by the party leadership on Tuesday following queries over his claims
for rewiring and shelving, faced more allegations that he billed the taxpayer
twice in three months for wood flooring at his London flat.

The backbencher, who is said to have discovered claims made falsely in his
name, was unavailable for comment.

The publication of the documents on the UK Parliament website was the result
of a four-year Freedom of Information battle. The redaction of addresses and
the exclusion of correspondence regarding disputed or rejected claims meant
that the controversy over Ms Blears' claims, and those relating to MPs "flipping"
second homes, as in the case of Alistair Darling, would never have come to
light.

Nor would the public have known about the "phantom mortgages" of Elliot Morley
and David Chaytor, the dry rot treatment at Margaret Moran's third home, the
dredging of Douglas Hogg's moat or Sir Peter Viggers' duck house. In each of
these cases, the MP concerned has either been deselected or is now not seeking
re-election.

In other strange expenses, Christopher Fraser claimed more than 1800 for
cherry laurel and red cedar trees, Fabian Hamilton 135 for an iPod Nano and
Liberal Democrat Lembit Opik 20 for a wig for a charity event.

Despite the secrecy, some new details did emerge, such as how George Osborne
claimed 47 for two DVDs of his speech on "Value for Taxpayers' Money".


Last night, it was confirmed that MPs have repaid nearly 500,000 following
the public outrage. The amount includes just over 800 from Gordon Brown,
mostly regarding a cleaning bill, and 4200 from Douglas Alexander, the
International Development Secretary, over the rental of a building.

Yet despite all the talk of transparency from the Commons authorities, they
confirmed MPs' expenses for 2008/09 would be published in the "same format"
- ie, with the same censorship.

The Westminster Establishment spent more than 140,000 on the abortive effort
to avoid revealing the expenses details before being defeated in the High Court
in May last year.

The process of scanning and editing all the receipts from 2004 to 2008 has cost
a further 2m and taken 13 months. As part of a desperate rearguard action
against publication, the Commons passed a measure exempting MPs' addresses
and other "security-sensitive" information from publication.

Whole place is up in arms just now...
Jim devine claims to have the backing of his constituiency but that was not the impression everyone was giving off at his clinic today.
Mr devine could not be bothered to appear in person and sent along a representative.
No doubt too busy with his interview at McDonalds.
