British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Criticized for £150 plumbing work

These days, some Parliament members in England from both the ruling and opposition parties are in an embarrassing situation because a recent news report by a newspaper informed the people that some MPs were wasting a lot of money at the expense of the taxpayers’ money. This matter has caused a lot of controversy and anger among ordinary people. If you want to know about the expenses that have caused anger among people then you should visit this link of BBC: MPs' expenses in detail. About the expense claim off Prime Minister Gordon Brown it is written:

Claim: Gordon Brown also claimed twice for the same plumbing work within six months of each other.

Response: The House of Commons Fees Office said the mistake had been inadvertent and apologised for having not spotted it. Gordon Brown is understood to have repaid the sum involved - believed to be £150.

£150 only? I wonder what the lobbyists in the UK do!
