Sleaze Hoon & Smith Parliament Pigs

Jacqui Smith expenses claims are getting more incredible, the Mail are reporting - a barbecue, toothbrush holder, doormat, patio heater and a flatscreen TV. She says - “I've abided both by the letter of the law and by the spirit of the regulations”. Really? Regulations that state claims should only be for items needed to perform your parliamentary duties. You're having a laugh, kitting out your family home is what a salary is for Smithy.

Geoff Hoon is also in the spot light now, having lived rent free in a grace and favour flat when Defence Secretary, he rented out his main home and then claimed taxpayer's money for his “second home” in his constituency. Effectively he makes a choice to buy two homes and claims for the expense, yet again he's saying it's within the rules. These must be the unspoken rules of parliament, they who make laws can break laws.
