The Conservative party was thrown into turmoil today when it was revealed that famed former Tory leader Harold Macmillan was the first person to advocate milking the public purse.
Parliamentary correspondent Ben Downing-Street revealed that the famous speech made by the then Tory leader referring to how good things were referred to MP's expenses.
"Mr Macmillan had just taken delivery of a new yacht when he was caught explaining to MP's how easy it was to de-fraud the public purse."
A closer inspection of the receipt submitted at the time showed that the yacht was explained away as an 'open water floatation and transfer of persons device vital to the defence of the realm'.
Former MP Douglas Fuk'me said "I remember it like yesterday. Harry burst into the commons shouting 'I can't believe it lads. I got a new yacht and you can too, You've never had it so good!!' Fortunately the resident commons reporter did not hear the whole of the statement and could only report on the last 6 words."
Tory leader David Cameron said "I am totally appalled that Mac could be found out like this. I shall of course force him to repay the money or face the sack!"
When it was pointed out that Mr Macmillan had been dead for a number of years, Mr Cameron said "Bollocks"
