PM's expenses

In view of the fuss made over wreaths and church collections, it is surprising that we haven't heard more about the fact that the Prime Minister claimed £30 on his office expenses for the cost of hiring a bagpiper to play at a ceremony for veterans.

The same report for the Telegraph says that Mr Brown flipped the designation of his second home before moving into Downing Street and submitted an estimated electricity bill for his home in Fife which partly covered a period when his London flat was his designated second home.

He also claimed for council tax and service charge bills for his London flat for periods when his second home was in Scotland.

And how was this different from any of the MPs who have been barred from standing again?
