Gravy train MPs grab a farewell £17million in expenses

TAXPAYERS had to fork out more than £17million to see the back of the last “rotten” Parliament, it was revealed yesterday.

MPs carried on claiming in the wake of the expenses scandal, blowing more than £90million in the run-up to the election.

Shamed Jim Devine and David Chaytor continued to draw the cash even after they were charged with fiddling.

And the costs mounted with 221 departing MPs spending £6.8million “winding up” their offices.

My comment: That's an average of over £30,000 each just to convert their garage offices back to a garage and tell their relatives to find a real job :). Here we go round the public trough, the public trough, the public trough.....and they all stink of corruption. Oink.
