    Tory MP quizzed by cops on his expense claims.

    MP Craig Mackinlay quizzed over election expenses

    A Conservative MP has been interviewed under caution over his election expenses, the BBC understands.

    Craig Mackinlay, the MP for South Thanet, is being investigated over alleged overspending in the 2015 general election campaign.

    Mr Mackinlay defeated the then UKIP leader Nigel Farage in the ballot.

    I would hope that this is not the only MP that is being questioned about expense claims as we hear about many MPs making claims for ridiculous reasons all the time.

    This has been done before and it does not seem to have any effect on these greedy pigs.

    Maybe if they are given a criminal record and a period of imprisonment they might pay attention.

    Yes, I agree that the politicians are not punished hard enough for these fraudulent actions.

    At times it appears as if they are above the laws that the rest of us have to live by.

    The old saying fits well here: "There is those and there is such as those"

    MPs seem to think that they are above the law, but they should be shown regularly that they are not.
