Gordon Brown - My Fake Diary

Monday, 27 August 2012

The ThisisLondon site said in 2010:

Gordon Brown admitted that the MPs expenses scandal had been a "scar" on British democracy today as he warned that only a radical overhaul of Parliament would quell the public's anger.
Speaking for the first time since yesterday's report on the saga, the Prime Minister said reforming the voting system and cleaning up Commons expenses were now vital.

"We have taken the action necessary to clean up politics, but I am determined now to reconnect Parliament and the public, to bring politics back to the people. It's their Parliament, not ours," he said. "This expenses scandal has been a scar on democracy and has done great damage to the reputation of parliament. We are putting the discredited old system behind us and I want to see the new system in place as soon as possible."

So, in all, I have claimed only £19,237 in parliamentary expenses on air travel between London and Edinburgh between June 29 2010 and Jan 23, 2012.

He he he!
