Multimillionairre Nick Clegg claims his electricity on the taxpayer. Cameron fails to declare his links to Common Purpose.

They’re STILL at it… Hundreds of MPs – including Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg – get their energy bills paid on expenses

  • Politicians claimed a total of £200,000 on expenses for gas and electricity
  • 340 MPs have taken advantage of the perk, while many struggle to pay bills
  • Ed Miliband claimed £403.59 for fuel, Nick Clegg claimed £254.29
  • Highest claimer was Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi, who charged £5,822.27
Hundreds of MPs – including Ed Miliband – have together claimed a total of £200,000 on expenses to pay their energy bills.
Politicians have claimed up to £6,000 each for gas and electricity in their second homes, leaving hard-pressed taxpayers to pick up the bill.
Some 340 MPs, some of them multi-millionaires, have taken advantage of the perk at a time when many people are struggling to pay rising utility bills.
Even Labour leader Mr Miliband, who has attacked the Government over spiralling costs, claimed £403.59 for fuel at his constituency home in Doncaster.
TAP – Cameron doesn’t claim any fuel allowance.  I wonder who pushed this story into the media!

David Cameron is facing questions over his ties to a charity linked to the campaign for tougher regulation of the Press.
The Prime Minister officially declared in a newly published register of ministerial interests that he is patron of an initiative run by Common Purpose, a leadership organisation whose founders set up one of the most vocal lobbying groups for media regulation.
The initiative, Dishaa Venture, aims to build links between India and Britain and was launched in Bangalore by the Prime Minister in July 2010. He addresses participants in its programme each year.
However, Mr Cameron failed to declare the post for at least two years despite two opportunities to do so in official registers.
The disclosure comes days after the approval of a controversial cross-party charter introducing a system of Press regulation underpinned by statute and is likely to raise questions about why Mr Cameron did not register the link to a group closely associated with efforts to regulate the Press until last week.

    Ed miliband has put a block of silence on a report by Addenbrookes hospital which claims they are inundated with requests by people coming in from all over the world to just use our free NHS, except it isnt free, we paid for it and so did our parents and grandparents, yet our crooked politicians are passing it all out to health tourists.
    The hospital is like all hospitals unable to cope and they say they are not looking after the pateints properly because of this pressure and the hiring of interpreters etc
    is crippling them

    Wasn’t the NHS paid for out of The Marshall Plan i.e. Yank post war money that should have been spent on our worn out industrial manufacturing base?

    Both Cameron and Clegg were up to their necks in Common Purpose from day 1. Here they are taking the piss out of the electorate in their first press Conference as a couple – Downing Street on the afternoon of Wednesday 12th May 2010.

    Hi Tap, Anon 11:49, What you say is true in every word.
    However, Albert Pikes plan was to take away all Family values, all religion and all free thought.
    The giving away of NHS services to Foreigners is just part of the plan.
    The Freemasons have thought out the coarse of action well, all roads lead to the New World Order.
