    Beverly Flynn claimed enough mileage to drive around the world twice!

    She has a neck of brass, I'll say that for her.
    According to today's Sunday Mirror, Beverly Cooper Flynn claimed enough mileage last year to drive around the circumference of the Earth two times over.
    She even claimed over 8 grand in mileage for a period when the Dail only sat six times.
    It looks like plenty of others are in on the mileage stunt too. The Mirror reports Bertie claiming over 3 grand even though he has a driver and car.

    perhaps she has three homes to visit also?

    The worst of it is she will be re-elected next time out: there are enough Troglodytes in Mayo to ensure this.

    The rest of us should vote to cede from Mayo until they stop electing her.

    Not just her, though.
    Senator Terry Leyden claimed 30K in mileage and overnights while taking thirteen junkets abroad.
    Seriously, who reckons the public got value for money by sending this eejit abroad on so many holidays? And if he was abroad all the time, how did he clock up all that mileage back at home?
    He must have perfected the art of bi-location.
    They've all got their snouts in the trough.

    Leyden's lists of names don't compile themselves, you know

    Relying on the honesty of a pair of notorious perjurers is inherently a bad idea.

    The time has come to install a GPS tracking device in the boot of every mileage-claiming TD's car. A print-out detailing the duration of all journeys should accompany the expense claim, with an explanation for each trip to ensure that no personal journeys "inadvertently" slip through the cracks. Once submitted, each expense claim should be immediately published on the Oireachtas web-site.

    Screw that. Give them bus and rail passes and make them take public transport!
