David Cameron’s chillaxing at country pile Chequers has cost taxpayers £3.6million over the past five years.
The bill, buried in Cabinet Office accounts, comes as the Tories prepare to clobber 3.2 million low-paid households by slashing their tax credits by an average of £1,350 a year.
The annual cost of running the PM’s grace and favour pad in Buckinghamshire works out at £717,000 [per year] since he came to power in 2010.
Millionaire Mr Cameron lives with his family in a plush flat in Downing Street while the luxury West London home the couple own is rented out for tens of thousands of pounds a year.
Low-paid families will receive letters from HM Revenue & Customs in the run-up to Christmas, telling them their tax credit lifelines will be slashed or axed entirely from April.
