Does anyone seriously think he won't be out of a job by Friday.
From Today's Telegraph:
Mr Darling announced he will repay money to the taxpayer after The Daily Telegraph revealed he claimed Parliamentary expenses for a flat that he let to tenants while also claiming living allowances for his grace-and-favour home in Downing Street
In July 2007, 10 days after he became Chancellor, Mr Darling submitted a £1,004 claim for a service charge on his south London flat. It covered the six-month period to the end of December 2007.
MPs' expenses: One law for the rulers, and one law for the ruledMr Darling then moved into Downing Street and also began to claim second home allowances for his grace-and-favour apartments, meaning that costs relating to two of the Chancellor's homes were being met by the taxpayer at the same time.
Isn't it strange that Darling could comfortably write the most reckless budget in a century but keep his job. Yet when he was caught fiddling a thousand quid on his expenses, he sinks into trouble.
