As the cost of Christmas rockets, MPs are now claiming it from us on expenses

Last Updated: December 18, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

This year’s Christmas dinner will be 22 per cent more expensive than last years – that’s almost a quarter as much on top of last year’s.

And it’s full of plastic, because of pollution.

Meanwhile, MPs have just been cleared to claim the cost of their Christmas parties – from us – on expenses.

That includes food, soft drinks and even decorations.

And then they have the cheek to tell us there’s no cash to pay nurses the wage they used to get 12 years ago.

Shops like Aldi are trying to put a smile on our collective face – but it’s not working well, as Russell Howard demonstrates:

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Fascist tories are as usual hypocrites claiming ‘wah we fascist tory government can’t afford to increase female nurses’ pay but we can afford to waste your public money on MPs claiming expenses for their christmas lavish and extravagant parties!’

    So who are the real scroungers and crooks – why they are the fascist tories in political power because they are the ones giving all the MPs green light to claim exorbitant ‘expenses’ because MPs are so poorly paid (sic) they need an expenses claim fund!
