John Pugh expences

John Pugh-who is one of the MPs with the smallest claims for expenses-does not appear on Sir Thomas Legg's list of MPs who have to pay back expenses.

No one who knows John is the least surprise that he has behave properly throughout the MPs expenses scandal. It is sad that everyone else has not acted in the same way.

Lib Dem Voice has a analysis of the MP's who have had to pay back cash. It is well worth reading, amongst other interesting findings:
Amount to be repaid per MP based on the total number of MPs per party or grouping in the House of Commons:

Labour: £1,279.13
Conservative: £2,330.68
Lib Dem: £681.67
Others: £940.88
Overall: £2,971.91

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
