"In 2008 - months before the main expenses scandal broke - it emerged that she had mistakenly claimed for the cost of two pornographic films." according to the Mail. Hmm, makes you think how she can be such an expert on porn if she can mistake porn for some other item. Maybe Radio 5 Live are also mistaken by using her, apparently, naieve knowlege of adult movies. Who knows?
"She wasn't alone, just that the 'items' concerned were 'racier' (but far less costly) than duck houses etc I suppose." ------------------------------------------------- In fact duck houses and even moat cleaning were low cost compared to the flipping of homes to avoid paying Capital Gains Tax (CGT) of which all the main political parties were guilty of.
As notorious as her expense claims may be i think that the present situation is,presenting a documentary on porn,more a case of the programme makers seeking publicity and viewing figures than that of her "cashing in" on what was in effect her husbands prediliction,or to use a famous rock stars phrase "research". What i find distasteful is how these successful legalised 'kleptomaniacs' and 'public' failures can waltz from one overly remunerated position into another without 'seemingly'an ounce of honesty about them.
fourm member, Yes i agree it "takes two to tango" but is she taking advantage of the issue surrounding her expense claim or her status as (ex) Home Secratery,it would take a person of incredibly little 'tact' if it was the former.
