image for Stink over "New Labour Pig" in second homes scandal. Third little piggy caught with their snout in the trough.
McNulty: "Pay back my allowance? not by the hair on my chinny chin chin"!

Greg Hands, a shadow Treasury minister made a formal complaint against Tony McNulty, the government work, and pensions pig.

The shadow treasury piggy claimed that: "£60,000 of taxpayers' swill has been scoffed in expenses at Mr McNulty's parents' home in Harrow - clearly something has gone wrong here. McNulty has a "poke" eleven miles away."

The work and pensions pig is clearly using his second homes allowance to pay for his parent's pigsty or using it as a front to cream off an illicit allowance. McNulty is the MP from Harrow and living in Hammersmith - neither place is particularly far from Westminster and clearly I just don't think his arrangement is defensible.' Surely he could use his trotters to pop down to work or use public servant pig transport?"

The Conservative piggy's made a formal complaint to a Lyon called John, the Commissioner for Standards among piggy's, over £60,000 of payments made under the Commons second home allowance on a house in which a Mr McNulty's piggy parents live.

Greg Hands claims that McNulty "trousered" the sixty grand for a second pigsty he clearly does not need. In his letter of complaint to the Lyon, Hands wrote: "He has claimed the second home allowance for a "pig poke" in which his parents live. This is in apparent breach of the guidance".

The Work and Pensions pig insists that he has not broken the rules over the claims made on the pigsty in his Harrow constituency, which is 11 miles from the House of Commons.

He lived there until 2002, when he married his second sow, Christine Gilbert, and moved into her farmyard, eight miles away in Hammersmith, west London.

Mr McNulty admitted that he felt uncomfortable with his own pigswill allowance, and, did his best to screw even more out of the trough before it vanished.

"I was scared of the big bad wolf huffing and puffing my wooden house down, so I claimed a perfectly legitimate allowance for a more secure brick house, which coincidentally appears to be owned by my parents."

All inner London Parliament pigs are entitled to run a second sty in their constituency in addition to a property near to the Commons. Sadly, the rest of the farmyard has to run the gauntlet of public transport. Despite having clumsy trotters, McNulty joins a growing group, guilty of porcine impropriety along with Ed Balls, the minister for piglets, Yvette Cooper chief minister for pigsties and the foreign piggy secretary, Jacqui Smith
