Paying for 'Baby Mac'
Only yesterday, Mr MacKay declared to his local paper that he had nothing to fear over the row because all his claims in the past four years had been reasonable.
He thinks it is reasonable that I should pay for their two mortgages from the tax on my hard earned salary, give us a break.
I also notice he qualifies it by saying this applies to his expenses for the last four years, why not for ALL his claims! Isn't MacKay's wife as guilty as he? I know it's good practice to put a bit one one side for the baby, but surely one should use one's own cash.
It is now becoming blatantly obvious that a vast number of MP's from all parties, have been making over inflated, and in some cases, fraudulent claims. They are a disgrace to the Nation and every penny that they have dishonestly claimed, should be repaid immediately. Those guilty of any criminal offence and it appears obvious that there are some, should have the Whip withdrawn without delay and have their activities investigated. I suppose it would be too much to expect them to do the honourable thing and resign.
