Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Expenses! - the musical: part 4 - Elliot Morley


The Ballad of Elliot Morley (with apologies to the Beatles)

Elliot Morley
Pays off his mortgage and pockets a cool sixteen grand
All cash in hand;
‘Sloppy accounting’,
All a mistake and there’s nobody else he can blame,
Oh, what a shame!
All the crooked MPs
Where do they all come from?
All the crooked MPs
Where do they all belong?

Then David Chaytor
Puts up his hands and admits he’s been doing the same,
Playing the game,
Takes thirteen thousand
In interest to pay for a home that he already owns,
No outstanding loans.
All the crooked MPs
Where do they all come from?
All the crooked MPs
Where do they all belong?

    If you want a real dose of irony, check out http://benefitfraud.blogspot.com/
    and see how the justice system treats benefit claimants who 'forget' to tell the authorities about changes to their financial status.
