The Little Book of Big Expenses: How to Live the MP Lifestyle (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


A timely look at what MPs have been buying with our money. Plus other scams, swindles and scandals from around the world and how to make the most of your own expense account. Cynical, funny and full of fun...Cheaper than a Duck House and much more useful. Includes a look at: Who claimed what?; Quiz - match the claim to the political party; The Great Pension Dodge; biggest and smallest spenders; keeping it in the family, or how to employ your spouse/children and parents; how much taxpayers' money does it take to change a lightbulb? And much, much, MUCH more. Unfortunately for us. But it's not only our elected officials who have their snouts in the trough. We also look at absurd concert "riders" (who demanded a luxury 5-bedroom prefabricated house to be built within the confines of the O2 Arena in London for their concert?), and other political piggies from around the world (how many shoes does Imelda Marcos have? What made up Sarah Palin's $150K campaign wardrobe?). Plus all the other people pocketing our cash - from bankers to arms dealers - and corporate highwaymen.

And finally a guide to making the most of your own expense account, including a handy form to copy so you can claim this book back on expenses.
