So, is this the smoking gun, the reason that the Speaker didn\’t want to release these expense claims?
Gordon Brown claimed more than £18,000 in 2005-06 for a mortgage-free London flat, including £4,981 for cleaning, £2,385 for food and provisions, £815 for utilities and £900 for council tax.
This would be this flat:
Gordon Brown gave his £700,000 flat in central London to his wife Sarah weeks before he moved into 10 Downing Street, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
But the thing is, wasn\’t he actually living in the flat over 10 Downing Street (the Blairs living in the larger one over 11)?
Or is this all a storm in a tea cup?
