Kitty Usher's redacted expenses - are you having a laugh?

I've just had a quick look at disgraced Kitty Usher's expenses claim. She is the Treasury Minister who has been avoiding paying tax by flipping her second home designation, just like her boss Alistair Darling.

She has redacted so much of the details that it is impossible to make much sense of her claims.

Here are some screenshots to show the pi$$take.

From Catch-22.

Captain Yossarian has been set the task of censoring the letters of the enlisted men:

To break the monotony he invented games. Death to all modifiers, he declared one day, and out of every letter that passed through his hands went every adverb and every adjective. The next day he made war on articles. He reached a much higher plane of creativity the following day when he blacked out everything in the letters but a, an and the. That erected more dynamic intralinear tensions, he felt, and in just about every case left a message far more universal.
