REVIEW 2008: The Fat Controller Claims £2251 To Ride The Train

This post appeared back in July and revealed that the King of Sleaze, Tory Boy David Potts set an all time record for his expense claims. The money grabbing bastard screwed more than £2250 out of the council tax payer for first class rail travel in a single year!

Home from Home!

In a week when MPs expense claims came under scrutiny The Monkey thought it would be an apt time to remind bloggers that South Tyneside’s own Tory Boy, Councillor David Potts still holds the record for a single year’s travel expense claim.

His record breaking claim of £2251.90 for the period April 2005 to March 2006, was largely due to the fact that he screwed the system was claiming first class rail travel to and from Cambridge University where he was partying studying.

Councillor Potts even had the cheek to try and justify his blatant abuse of the public purse. He said, “People who’ve been in touch with me care more about the policies I stand for than the way in which I travel.”

Wrong Councillor Potts people think you screwed the system for personal gain!

Heaven help the poor taxpayer if by some quirk of fate he manages to beat Alistair Darling in the forthcoming General Election. Imagine BA flights from Edinburgh to London, taxis, accommodation costs, secetarial support, office expenses, communication and second home allowances, subsistence and of course the infamous ‘John Lewis’ list.

The Monkey reckons Tory Boy Potts is expecting the tax payer to handover at least half a million pounds in expenses for his five year stint!
