MP's expenses

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 07.02.10 22:33

Scores of MPs caught up in the Parliamentary expenses scandal will walk away from the Commons with a £30million payday – courtesy of the taxpayer.
Even after being hit in the pocket by returning money falsely claimed in allowances, most of them will end up with a substantial gain.
On the day they receive their final demand to settle their ‘fines’, the MPs will be given golden handshakes of up to £65,000, with the average lump sum being £48,662.

Hmmm.... The first £30,000 is tax-free.

It is? I never knew that, not that strange considering I never got a redundancy pay either.

I never knew that either. I guess though that not a huge amount of people's redundancy reaches 30k. Sad

Are they being made redundant, or are they resigning , or are they being sacked ?

Well I dont think they should be made redundant but if the first 30K is tax free then it bloody well looks like redundant Hissyfit

Some of the alleged, lump sums, being bandied about will be made up of pension payments too.

Hi
They should be sacked - disgusting, greedy, pisstaking creatures that they are. Can you imagine some one parent mum who forgets to tell the benefits office that she had done a little cash in hand work one week using the excuse - oh sorry it was just poor accounting and getting away with that?

Take care
