Fiddler on the hoof returns to cabinet

AhDinnaeKen is ashamed to welcome Lib-Dem ex-Minister for Rent Fiddling and Catamite Keeping back into whatever cabinet post Nicknick Clegger can blag for him: AwInitTheGither?

“There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.” – Benjamin Franklin

 

From Private Eye (Jun 2010) Number Crunching boxout:

£40,000 – Parliamentary expenses wrongly claimed by David Laws, who failed to declare he had been living with a partner since 2001, for which he was described by the Prime Minister as ‘a good and honorable man’.

£42,000 – Housing and other benefits wrongly clamed by Stoke-on-Trent shopworker who failed to declare she had married in 2003 – for which she has just been jailed for 18 months (some mistake surely).
