Now this wound me up. Andy Burnham defends his expenses claims by saying
I wish to make clear to you in the strongest possible terms that I resent any suggestion that I have knowingly misused public funds as the public record shows that, in the last five years, I have under-claimed on my ACA by around £40,000.
You are supposed to be claiming for expenses! You are not 'Under claiming' if you do not claim up to the limit. These fuckers do not even understand the concept of claiming expenses.
