In the twenty years since I graduated from University I have travelled greatly. I have stayed in many different hotels all around the world.
If once I had ever submitted an expense form with a claim for a porn film I would have been dismissed for gross misconduct immediately.
The Right Honourable Mrs. Jacqui Smith MP has claimed for two films : one apparently called Raw Meat 3, the other By Special Request. She has blamed her husband. I don't see how that works: it was not her husband who submitted the expenses claim, it was she herself.
This comes on top of the fact that Mrs. Smith has claimed £157,631 in expenses including £22,948 in "Second Home allowance" while seemingly registering her sister's home in South London as her main residence.
This woman is the HOME SECRETARY!!!!
Gordon Brown thinks that this is just a little personal difficulty.
No it isn't.
She should resign forthwith. Since she won't, I will certainly be looking forward to the eviction notice that the good voters of Redditch hand this grasping, dishonourable disgrace on election night.
Smith can join the long list of sleaze that starts with Ashcroft and ends in Yeo.
