MPs' expenses: top Tory in secret deal


A senior Conservative MP investigating Britain’s social care system secretly arranged for the owners of a chain of nursing homes to buy his London flat – which he now rents back at taxpayers’ expense, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.



Stephen Dorrell, the former health secretary who now chairs the House of Commons health committee, made a £70,000 profit from the controversial deal which has not previously been publicly declared.


Last night, Mr Dorrell admitted he had arranged for his friends Linton and Denise Connell to buy the flat near the Commons so that he could rent it back from them after a crackdown in the wake of the 2009 MPs’ expenses scandal.

The poison dwarf Bercow has also been throwing his weight around in an attempt to undermine the body set up to scrutinise MP's expenses claims:-

Problem is - past and present governments are quite content to let their MP's (and other high flyers) go down the immoral route - it's allowed.

The fact that the masses think they are scum when caught is not too important in their wealthy, privaleged lives
