Oh the pain, the despair, my life will be in tatters and turmoil now, one of the troughers is going (probably nowhere) still never mind, onwards and upwards .. Only 645 to go. How is she a “trougher”? She is one of the hardest working constituency MPs in Parliament who will be missed. She’s a trougher .. Brent East MP Sarah Teather has been dogged this week by revelations about expense claims for her constituency office and allegations that taxpayer money has been used for political campaigning (all articles here). Scrapbook can today disclose that, in addition to bills for her Parliamentary office, Sarah Teather has claimed for invoices worth £1,700 addressed to her local political party. Despite strict rules stating that “claims cannot relate to party political activity of any sort” bills addressed to “Lib Dems”, “Brent Liberal Democrats” and “Brent East Lib Dems” were charged to Teather’s expenses, including invoices for furniture, insurance and telephone maintenance. The accounts for Brent Liberal Democrats show that the party pays nothing in rent, telephone, insurance and electricity charges, despite sharing such facilities with the Brent East MP. A friendly Liberal Democrat source familiar with the office expenses system told Scrapbook: “The working assumption is that Teather will have to pay at least some of this money back. You simply can’t claim for receipts addressed to your local party – especially when you share an office with them.” They are all troughers, it’s what they do. Catastrophically depressed, but clear-minded enough to realise her parasitic pension will be boosted if she hangs on until the election. Comments are closed.
