Tory MP raises the expenses bar to stratospheric proportions

Just when we thought it was all over – the duck islands, the moat-cleaning, the gardening, the £400 for fixing a briefcase and second homes, the expenses issue rears itself again.

David Wilshire, otherwise known as that nasty piece of work who first tabled Section 28 into the Local Government Act of 1988 has been caught paying £100,000 in expenses to his own “company” – additionally, the company is offshore, has never audited any accounts and is unincorporated – the whole situation is stained with corruption.

A just falldown for the man who implemented a directly homophobic clause? Let’s just say I have no sympathy at all.

I’ve been quite tempted to log on to William Hill and place a bet on Wilshire being nudged towards resignation before the Sunday newspapers go to print. But I’m sure Cameron is working on his removal as I type this.

Well, Wilshire is 66 – what’s that Osbourne said about the retirement age recently? *

*thanks to @psbook for that one!
