image for MP claimed £55,000,000 golden throne on expenses
Hogg's Head Castle

A throne made of solid gold costing 55 MILLION was claimed on expenses by Conservative MP Douglas Hogg, it was revealed by the Telegraph last night.

Angry taxpayers and members of Hogg's constituency immediately jammed the switchboard of his luxurious castle with complaints.

But the appropriately named Hogg was unrepentant, claiming that the majestic seat was 'strictly necessary' for his work as a local MP.

Speaking via his butler, he told reporters ' I could not possibly meet and greet pensioners in my constituency with anything less impressive.'

Hogg has also claimed £50,000 for work done of his castle drawbridge and an additional £6,000 having his moat centrally heated.

'It was all within the rules' said Hogg's butler.
