Jacqui Smith: benefits cheat
Via Guido, I see that Jacqui Smith—surprise, surprise—has been defrauding the taxpayer to the tune of some £116,000, as reported by the Mail on Sunday.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has claimed more than £116,000 in Commons expenses for a 'second home' while effectively lodging with her sister.
Ms Smith claims the maximum parliamentary second-home allowance, currently a tax-free £24,006 a year, on the detached house in her West Midlands constituency, where her husband and two young children live and which she bought for £300,000 five years ago.
She is able to do so because she has told the Commons authorities that her 'main home' is a house in London owned solely by her sister, Sara, where she stays on some weekdays.
Nor is this the only large expense caused by the Home Secretary's decision to share her sister's house.
Two policemen provide a round-the-clock guard at the South London property, costing taxpayers an estimated £200,000 a year. The two officers are stationed at the property on a shift basis.
There would have been no need for such protection had Ms Smith opted to live in one of two vacant grace-and-favour ministerial homes in Whitehall when she became Home Secretary in 2007 as they already have police protection.
But such a move would have affected Ms Smith's personal finances: Ministers who live in such properties are not allowed to claim the Commons second-home allowance.
Not only is this woman a disgustingly illiberal scumbag who is keenly pressing ahead to tag and track us like a herd of fucking livestock©, but she has been quite clearly defrauding the taxpayer to the tune of £24,000 a year.
Lest you need reminding, the median wage in Britain is about £24,000—except that we have to pay over £5,500 tax and NICs on that. These venal fuckers who claim to rule us have an exemption with HMRC so that MPs—such as this hideous, fat tart—don't have to pay any tax on their expenses.
Prosecute this fraud: prosecute her now.
They are all at it: all of them—MPs, Lords, and the rest. The money that they steal so blithely represents the hard work of the productive members of this country. It is our money that they are stealing.
Let us go through the whole of Parliament, and prosecute anyone who has stolen our money...
UPDATE: it is worth pointing out that our fucking corrupt Home Secretary is practised in the art of deception, encouraging (I assume) her husband to write to the newspapers praising her fat, useless arse whilst failing to declare the financial and uxorial relationship that he has with the subject of his letters.
