Of course she uses private healthcare, who better than her to know what the alternative can be like. Just because you have a Lab label doesn't mean you believe in any of that common man stuff.

Would you eat the cake if you knew the chef had used out of date egss and powdered milk to make it?

A bit of sh1tstirring by some hack.

Believe me, whatever was done in a private clinic, it was not a hell of a lot for £285. There is another thread on ARRSE where a chap is complaining that his GP is charging him £100 to tick 4 boxes on a questionnaire.

The other story about the house renovations also sounds like a Tory council trying to score political points. The house in question (I've been there several times, admittedly 15-20 years ago) is a Victorian terrace, and probably around 120-150 years old. I'm not surprised it needs an overhaul.

Shitstirring or not she still claimed for private services at a hospital, and had the cheek to claim these back from the taxpayer.

As to the house, neighbours claim that the Keens havent been seen there for months if not longer, we are paying for their flat overlooking the Thames, while they have their main residence within 10 miles of Westminster.

Technically and physically they are in breach of the rules. The fact that they have been living full time in their taxpayer-funded “second” home appears to be a clear breach of Commons rules, which state that an MP’s second home should be where he or she spends fewer nights.

Well, I wouldn't be in too much of a rush to believe the Evening Standard, I mean, journos always tell the truth and never put a spin on anything, do they...

Journo's will spin a story, politicians will go out of their way to lie and deceive. Just look at Brown's performance at PMQ's today.

Still being a Health Minister and submitting private healthcare claims is a bit of a contradiction.

It is strange that the Evening Standard should run this story concerning 'Mrs Expenses', as that erstwhile excellent rag has lurched so far to the Left in the last month or so. Maybe it's editorial staff consider 'Mrs Expenses' a despised Rightist.

Whatever, another 'minister' of this government of all the goats who will be voted out come the general election. (If she is not standing, the Labour candidate will still not win).

More pi**ed off that she still claims "Main residence" yet not living there and admits to major renovations.
To me. when you board up windows and have the builders in the property is uninhabited.
So why not stop claiming..................oops, sorry they are MPs

Just a question from the other side of the pond. The pictures show a kitchen with stone counters and nice looking cabinet work. Having once had my home remodeled (sadly, shortly before my divorce) I know it is expensive.

Question?: Did the taxpayers pay for the done over kitchen?

"Question?: Did the taxpayers pay for the done over kitchen?"


As this is their Primary residence we shouldn't have had to pay for refurbishment of any of the house, however we have a quaint old custom followed by some of these greedy scumbags called "flipping" where suddenly the main residence can become the secondary home. This would have permitted them to claim for refurbishments.

As a point to note, both these MP's represent constituencies within 15 miles of Westminster, and actually have their 2nd home within a short walk of the Palace of Westminster. The primary house is no more than 10 miles from Westminster.

Very sad to see these pictures, I've had some good times in that house (many years ago now, but i still remember them fondly). And I'm fairly sure the only taxes paid by the scrotes that did it is excise duty on Special Brew, bought from their benefit payments.

Ann Keen was one of the best nurse tutors I ever met, and passionate about her job. I'm saddened to see cheap shots been taken against her, especially crap like this from scrotes that have not contributed 1/10 of what she has to the good of society as a whole.

Rant over, crack on the outrage bus.

edited to add: I was talking to a friend last night who has the builders in for a similar job. It was supposed to take 3 months, 8 months on it is not near ready.
