A Swansea West constituent asks his MP
Swansea West Labour MP, Geraint Davies commenting on the rioting in Croydon, an area he used to represent in Parliament, stated "...it is clear what we have seen is just opportunist criminality."
In 2004-05, when Davies was MP for Croydon Central he claimed the highest expenses of any MP in the country, a staggering £176,026. Despite Croydon being only 12 miles or a 20-minute commute from London Victoria, this included overnight cost allowance and £4,000 renovating his designated second home, a flat in Westminster.
The difference is that, unlike looting electrical goods, MPs' opportunism isn't considered criminal. It just feels that way to us, the victims.
