Dozens of MPs claimed thousands of pounds in 'phantom mortgages' which were secretly agreed by Commons officials, it has been claimed.Labour MP Ben Chapman said he was given permission to claim £15,000 in expenses for a loan which he had paid off.
The Labour MP, who has refused to hand back the money, said he was told that his case was 'not unique'.
If this wasn't so serious it would be hilarious. Well the list of Merseyside MP's wanting to keep the expenses status quo secret was posted on this site last Saturday 9TH May and guess what Labour MP Ben Chapman was top of the list, but what do you expect from the crooked and exhausted Labour Party. I wonder if any of the other Merseyside MP's are getting nervous.
