    Lord Taylor guilty of making false expenses claims

    Ex-Tory peer Lord Taylor of Warwick has been found guilty of making 11,277 in false parliamentary expenses claims.

    I read later in the BBC article however that:

    Taylor [a former barrister btw!] said it had been a common practice among peers to claim for fake journeys and enter expenses claims with a false address as a main residence, and he believed it was acceptable to do this provided there was a "family connection" with the property

    Oh yes, silly me, now that he's explained it I can quite see that it's perfectly "acceptable" for him to have commited fraud as it's a common practice among his fellow peers!

    Kind regards

    Mr B

    Hi td

    Fortunately I doubt he'll get away scot free, I think it's the same judge who sent the MP to prison for fiddling his expenses. Expect a prison sentence for this vile individual!

    Hope you and all are having a good weekend

    Mr B
