interesting snipit from the 30 year rule release

No, it was £1,800 for the celebratory piss-up after he went missing.
The question still applies then. Could you see Mr Blair, or any current MP, springing out to celebrate anything, if he could blag it on exes? Even Mr Brown would turn up at parliament to claim the costs.

MPs, the freeloader's freeloader.

2K GBP? That's not even much of a "business" lunch in some circles, do get a grip. The expenses scandal is a burst pimple across a corrupt body politic that was fully formed by the end of the 80s.

MPs are no different from anyone else in the UK and their was plenty of spectacular nest feathering going on in Mrs T's day. That administration's cronies did spectacularly well out of public largesse and Mr Tony and his fat Scottish pal just broadened the trough.

In 1982 prices..? When the average London House was about £50k, not £450K.........

And to quote a thread... http://www.arrse.co.uk/current-affairs-news-analysis/156840-corrupt-politicians.html

But sticking to the thread. The then PM paid the FCO's costs involved in the search for Mr.M.Thatcher. Can anyone believe that Mr.T.Bliar would have done the same ?

Just for balance.

I was a LCpl in 1982 and my basic pay was £5,100 on a 9 year engagement. For those who are from more recent times a LCpl on shorter engagements would have earned less.

Not forgetting the prodigal sons alleged profits from al Yamayah of course.....

I completely agree with you. The Blessed Maggie had integrity, a concept that is sadly lacking in today's politicians.
