A message to Hywel Francis. " At Least Dick Turpin Had The Decency To Wear A Mask..."


ABERAVON MP Hywel Francis clocked up a food bill of more than £5,000 over two years.

Over the same period, from 2006 to 2008, Dr Francis also billed taxpayers more than £1,500 for work on his website.

He also claimed £2,000 in one year for cleaning at his second home in London – though this fell to £200 in 2007 and 2008, the latest period for which documents are available.

On three occasions during that time, he submitted claims of £400 for food – the maximum amount MPs could claim at the time without producing a receipt.

He also claimed more than £3,000 in ground rent and service charges for his second home, as well as monthly mortgage interest payments of between £1,111 and £1,262 – and £85 for repairs to curtain rails.

In 2006, he claimed £270 for a vacuum cleaner and digital TV box, £560 on a washer-dryer, a bureau and table and chair sets for his kitchen and dining rooms.

He also claimed £348 for a chair, kitchen blind, TV and DVD stand and £272 for repairs to his central heating system.

From 2004 to 2005, he claimed £3,000 as a contribution towards legal fees and stamp duty when he moved home.

He also claimed £150 for two side tables, £225 for a coffee table and £325 for an undisclosed “mystery” item, which is blacked out on the public documents released.

In 2007, he claimed £1,250 against his office costs allowance for creating a new website and paid £200 to Cilfrew company Wired Up Wales for updating the site with surgery dates and press releases.

In 2006, he paid £60 for website updates as well as £90 in hosting fees and registration costs.
He also billed taxpayers for his membership of Bevan Foundation and then paid them £2,500 for research on regeneration of the Afan Valley.

These creatures seem to believe that they are untouchable, but our people are waking up and they will receive justice.

Francis should make any working class person vomit. He's there to represent his constituents. but the only person he really represents is his fat, greasy self.

There is only one way to get rid of these parasites and that is to vote BNP in the upcoming general election.

That creature Francis absolutely disgusts me.....

Let's hope enough people in Port Talbot see sense and vote BNP.

This is our only chance of getting rid of this useless,liability of an MP.

There is nothing honourouble about " Hywel the Steal."

The BNP is the only party that can knock this crook off his own self opinionated throne.
