That's the same Oliver Letwin who is devising the plans for Tory spending cuts when they come to power

I'm assuming that -- at the very least -- there was actually a tennis court, a pipe, and a repair bill.

Jack Straw, on the other hand, "... claimed for council tax he had never paid, luckily discovering his mistake and repaying the £1,500 only after the High Court ruled that all expenses claims had to be published." (source)

Fucking sickening, isn't it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and one other thing... why the hell are MPs allowed to claim their taxes back on expenses? That's screwed up way beyond normal political pocket-lining.
