Eric Illsley MP

After the news about Chaytor, here's yet another thieving bastard MP who has decided to cop a plea to get get his sentence reduced in the realization that he hasn't got a leg to stand on!

At least this one has had the good grace to quit as an MP rather than wait to be thrown out - although I gather that the Milipede was applying pressure! Eric Illsley pleaded guilty on Tuesday admitting £14,000 of expenses frauds . Amongst these, he claimed £10,000 over a four-year period when he £3,966 in actual council tax. The police concluded that he had overclaimed £20,000 in council tax and other domestic charges over three years.

Not only does this thief get a good parliamentary salary, but is also paid £10,000 a year by the caravan club. He said that 'he deeply regretted his actions' but the cynical amongst might think that he actually regretted getting caught.

Let's hope there's a another custodial sentence in the offing when he is sentenced next month, then you have him to burn, Old Nick!
