Brit politician ‘claimed sauna on taxpayer-funded allowances’!May 3rd, 2009 - 4:00 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 3 (ANI): Falling among growing cases of misuse of taxpayer-funded allowances is the recent report of a British Labour MP, who allegedly claimed the cost of building a sauna on his allowance.
Previously, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith had apologised following the humiliating admission that she claimed expenses for the cost of two porn films watched by her husband.
And now, the unnamed parliamentarian was said to have rang a similar bell by claiming the cost of installing a sauna, the bill for which was suggested to have run into thousands of pounds.
In his defence, the MP had reportedly insisted that a skin condition had compelled him to take regular sessions at home.
“Jacqui Smith claimed for her husband’s porn films and an 88p bath plug but to claim for installing a sauna would be absolutely breathtaking,” the Telegraph quoted a Commons source as saying. (ANI)
