++MPs to repay profits from 2nd Homes++

MPs are to be forced to repay profits made on second homes

Sir Ian Kennedy, the chairman of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa), told the Times that some of the profit should be "surrendered". The only question to be decided was how that would happen, he said.

Backdated to the 1980's?

With interest?



Leading Scientists say world may not be warming at all.

No shit Sherlock. We have known for sometime that the green lobby was just the same old recycled marxists in disguise.

Ermm, how about a windfall tax? After all, Brown loves taxing the death out of companies that make money. Let's say 98%?

I think we should follow Labours mantra:

"No Reward For Failure".

At the end of an MPs working time in his or her constituency the voters in the borough should be given a local referendum to gauge whether the outgoing MP has been good value for money & honest.

If they are found wanting then they should forfeit their pension & golden parachute.

No Reward For Failure.

Perhaps the Department of Work and Pensions (or whatever it is currently called), could set all our unemployed the task of designing the most painful method possible.

There's that little problem with it being retrospective again. They will fight it on those grounds and they will win. It will cost us more than what we will get back and the taxpayer is once again going to be shafted.

some of the profit should be "surrendered".

Some as in a small proportion and surrendered as in "could you maybe give us a token gesture please,maybe,No! oh ok."

It should be taken by force like every other mug punter tax payer,and swindlers should be jailed....so there!

Luke 16:19-31

“There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table.

Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side.

The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. ...

How about a 20% tax on second homes when the MP retires or loses to help pay for MPs' expenses? Doesn't Mascara Burnham like that? Diddums.

wv = blesse !

How about no second homes at all and any expenses incurred by MP's should be re-imbursed by the party they represent and not the tax payer, that should make them a little more circumspect when claiming expenses?

At the minimum the government should stick them in that huge block of flats across from Elephant and Castle (The name of which escapes me at the moment), it's sitting empty ;-)

Being led to believe by MPs that going into politics was a sacrifice is the real killer.
Saying that they could earn more in the private sector(doubtful)and 56k was no great shakes,knowing full well, that with all the expences and profiteering on property they WERE on a par with the private sector.
I wouldn't mind but most are shit at their job for all the money they cost.

No new rules/laws needed. Also lets not spend more time/money on this than is needed. We've already been conned out of another £6m to monitor £1m expenses FFS!!

All we need is for the MP to pay the tax that (s)he should have paid at the time they sold the second home under the tax laws that applied at the time.

Give them 30 days to do it. Anyone that fails gets raided by HMRC, has a full investigation of their tax affairs, has to pay anyway, is fined and gets charge the interest and is banned from any public office in the future.

Make the fuckers pay it back, I am still struggling to get my housing benefit, which is difficult as I do not have a fixed address at present, and I am forced to sleep under a piss stained blanket in a basement car park with a dead dog for a pillow, and scrounge food from rubbish bins.
Why should politicians get all the treats?

I'll believe it when I see it.

At best it'll start with the next parliament with a fucked property markt.

Or we'll end up funding any value drops incurred by the johny-scum-lately to the trough

Toying with the idea of applying for my dream job in the Netherlands. It is a free country so I should be happy there if everything is free Tulips and windmills along with an adult attitude to cheese splitters and Gay porn. The problem is my current CV. Should I mention on it that I once poked my finger in a dyke? admittedly she was my ex-girlfriend, well I say girlfriend but she just wanted my tadpoles to make a baby and claim extra benefits.
Quite why a 17 stone lorry driving bull dyke wanted a chavvie by me is still a mystery to me. Anyway after two months of filling the turkey baster with the finest Broxted pearl jam six times a day nothing happened. She got well pissed off with me, took a sample to the fertility clinic and the letter arrived ten days later announcing I was a Jaffa, no pips, the last of my family line and she fucked off. Women are such fickle creatures.....Oooh matron....cont. page 75.

Funny use of the word "forced". "Asked politely", I would have thought.
