We have been hearing alot about MP’s dodgy expenses of the latest couple weeks. Now it has been revealed in the Telegraph that Mrs McCarthy-Fry, who is Under-Secretary of State for Schools and Learners. Tried to claim £100 for a set of GHD Hair Straighteners that she got from a local hair salon in her Portsmouth constituency. Her claim was rejected by the claims office thankfully.
Mrs McCarthy-Fry said: “With regard to the hair straighteners, I fully accept this was a personal item that was claimed in error and was correctly rejected by the fees office.” Well i for one am getting more and more annoyed by these mistakes. Whenever a MP gets caught with there hand in the till, all the ever say is, it was a mistake. Well if you all keep make mistakes are you really fit for office? NO. GHD’s are a very expensive item and it is a real cheek that there are MP’s out there that think they can put this down as a expense, while the genera; public has to work hard and save to buy their straighteners.
