That lady in question is Barbara Follett who happens to be the wife of millionaire author Ken Follett. During the years 2003/2004 she claimed for 18 visits  at 94 per time.

Tony Blair claimed 10,600 for a new kitchen and 112.00 to pay a Council bill for removing rubbish.

Gordon Brown claimed for Sky tv television licence, utility and Council tax, and in 2005/2006 claimed 2,900 for cleaning services and 2,600 for food

John Prescott claimed 6,707 for repairs to his Hull house including new windows sills and mock tudor boards to the front gable.

The expression gravy train comes to mind.

I was watching the news last night, and they were showing you the expenses MP's get as they can't keep it a secret anymore, and I thought it was disgusting! I was, however, distraught when it showed you that Margaret Beckett was turned down 600 for her garden! The poor thing! Perhaps we could set up a fund for the poor love...."THE MARGARET BECKETT GARDEN FUND" Oh, sorry, I forgot, no one can afford to donate anything as the cost of living is so high these days!
