I'm glad to see no-one on here is demanding that the Culture Minister should resign over her quite understandable mistakes in her expenses claims. Who hasn't made the same kind of error? That she has Hunt and Duncan Smith supporting her shows what a fine upstanding person she is. We need more like her.

Absolutely. Don't it make us realise what a quality bunch they are.

I am sure our own MP Mr Baker, who used to have such a lot to say about expenses, will also support her vociferously, knowing , as he does, the difference between an obvious error and the outrageous expense fiddling that he used to enjoy exposing before he was in Government himself. Maybe someone would like to ask him?

Four posts and we all agree. It's heartwarming to know that a cross section of Lewes people appreciate class, style and commitment in our politicians. I wonder if we should invite the minister down for Bonfire. I'm sure things would go with a bang.

I find it strange she cliamed just short of the full allowance available , she was £115 quid short having claimed over 99k , that's a well judged mistake I would say , maybe the could all have a room in our new premier inn , and the travel with our norm , he could keep abs on them as well as the train service simples

It is unbelievable isn't it. I am almost speechless. She (though she isn't the only one) again has taken the pi$$ out of all of us. An immediate firing, AND pay back all the money I reckon.
Hoping the press really goes to town.

I think repaying about 12% of what you claimed in error is about right, and look forward to the same principle being extended to benefit claimants.
After all, we're all in this together, aren't we?

If she stays in post then I take that as another measure of the disdain us oiks are considered to be by this government/coalition shysters.
