Oink if you love your children...

A Labour MP says he will stand down at the next election if his constituents demand it, following allegations over his second home expenses claims.
The Daily Telegraph says Dr Ian Gibson, Norwich North MP, claimed for a London flat while his daughter and her partner lived there rent-free.

Among the latest reports on Friday, the Telegraph says Dr Gibson sold the London flat to his daughter and her partner for less than he paid and well below the market value.
He is reported to have sold the flat to them in April for £162,000, despite having bought it for £195,000 in 1999.

Dr Gibson has insisted he acted within the rules and "made nothing on the house whatsoever".

  1. I'm distressed at these relentless attacks on our elected representatives. What's wrong with a little nepotism?
