(2009) New Labour M.P. Paddy Tipping -PARASITE

MP Paddy Tipping has claimed £400 – the maximum allowance for food – almost every month for the past five years.

The claims were made throughout the year, including during parliament's two-month summer holiday.

Speaking to the Evening Post he said: "That was the amount prescribed in the rules and I do go to parliament during the recess, not every day or as regularly when parliament is sitting."

Other expenses included a £199.98 vacuum cleaner from Currys, £1,175 on external decoration and repairs at his flat in London as well as annual TV licences.

He also pays about £500 on mortgage interest payments on his flat in London.
