exclusive: conservative councillor jeff milburn caught milking the system

'His weekly expenses claim is more than the Jobseeker's Allowance'.

'His weekly expenses claim is more than the Jobseeker's Allowance'.

After yesterday’s revelations that Conservative councillor David Potts set another record for travel and subsistence claims in 2008 – 09 by pocketing a more than £3,393 in expenses CLICK HERE, Mr Monkey can today reveal that Cllr Milburn, who like his leader has a poor attendance record, claimed £3,260 in travel expenses and £188 in subsistence in the last 12 months.

This brings the total amount he’s claimed since he was first elected, just 18 months ago (April and May’s figures have not been published) to a £5,237 – or about £67 per week .

Not bad when you consider the weekly job-seekers allowance for a single person is £64.30.
