Corrupt politicians are nothing new... so Jacqui Smith's expense claims saga wouldn't really be worth commenting on, except for the fact that in her claiming frenzy she accidentally claimed for two adult movies on a pay-per-view TV service. Apparently watched 'when she wasn't at home'. But when hubby was. Tsk tsk.
I also enjoy this line, from Conservative MP Mark Field, regarding her second home allowance:
"She says it's all within the rules, which I'm sure is right... but the reality is it's not within the spirit of the rules.
"If she doesn't recognise that I think she's really a bit too stupid to be Home Secretary."
Hehehe. I love British politics.
