David Laws and the Rent Boy!

David Laws and the Rent Boy!

MPs' Expenses: Treasury chief David Laws, his secret lover and a £40,000 claim

"The Cabinet minister charged with rescuing the Government’s finances has used taxpayers’ money to pay more than £40,000 to his long-term partner, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

David Laws, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, claimed up to £950 a month for eight years to rent rooms in two properties owned by his partner. The claims could be against parliamentary rules governing MPs’ second home expenses.

On Friday night, Mr Laws apologised and announced that he would “immediately” pay back tens of thousands of pounds claimed for rent and other housing costs between 2006 and 2009. He also referred himself to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner".

Is the 'just say sorry and pay back the stolen money' also going to extend to those caught up in the Criminal Justice trap?
