Yet again, a Tory MP explains that he has done nothing wrong and was just following the rules.
Quite why a multi millionaire needed the tax payer to pay for a new mortgage on a property when hr was, at the same time, paying off a mortgage in full on another house seems slightly confusing to those of us who do not have a personal fortune of more than £10 million.
Still, if you are David Cameron, the sh!t does not appear to stick ? Why must Andrew Mackay step down for "just following the rules" but David Cameron seems exempt ?
The Tories claimed only a few days ago that they had audited themselves and had repaid anything they were not entitles to. Cameron came out of this review only having to return a small amount of cash and this extra mortgage, paid for by taxpayers was, according to the Tories own audit, completely in order.
So it begs the question, does the Tories own audit stand up to scrutiny and can we trust David Cameron ?
