The Sunday Times today highlights the intriguing duplicity of Lord Taylor of Warwick—exposed as yet another thieving bastard in the House of
A TORY peer has been caught using someone else’s home address to claim tens of thousands of pounds in expenses.
Lord Taylor of Warwick, a 57-year-old former barrister, told the House of Lords that his main home was a terrace house in Oxford which he neither owned nor lived in.
The property’s owner, Tristram Wyatt, a university academic, said he was unaware that his address had been used as the peer’s main home.
Another day, another dishonest little shit stealing from the taxpayer... Plus ca change, or so you might think.
What really sets Lord Taylor apart is the fact that he appears to have elevated his lies to a near-pathological level. It's almost as though he has lied simply for the sake of lying without actually caring whether or not the lies were even vaguely plausible. [Emphasis mine.]
Taylor has lived in his family home in Ealing, west London, since 1995. By claiming his address was outside the capital he accumulated more then £70,000 in subsistence expenses between 2001 and 2007.
When confronted earlier this year, Taylor claimed he had lived at his mother’s home in the West Midlands during those years. However, this claim was false as his mother died in 2001 and her house was sold that year.
His former wife has also confirmed that he lived in London, and nowhere else, until their separation in 2003.
Surely most people would have realised that these lies were tissue-paper thin? I mean, for fuck's sake, either he is, in fact, a pathological liar or, alternatively, he has a total and utter contempt for the taxpayer.
This is, of course, pure speculation: what isn't speculation, however, is the fact that Lord Taylor of Warwick appears to be a liar, a fraud and a thief.
Just another politico then...
