I was too busy

The soon former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith apologised for claiming £1 entry fee in expenses on her first home. She confirmed that it was claimed by mistake by her secretary (which is also her husband). Apparently he was too distracted by his parliamentary duty movie viewing, she admitted.

Ms Smith claimed £22948 last year on her second home in Redditch. She strongly denied that she spent there more time than in her designated first home, which is a public toilet in Trafalgar Square.

Ms Smith said:
"I definitely spend more time in my main home. I am there every day, sometimes twice, three times a day."

The homeless man nearby couldn't remember seeing her. However many passers-by did confirm that the toilet was almost always busy.

The Home Office issued the following statement:
"This mistake happened because Jacqui Smith was extremely busy working on the new enormously important law. It will ban any burial on the British soil of the remains of Ayatolla Khomeini, Adolf Hitler and Richard Nixon (former leaders of Iran, Germany and the US)."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
