What’s up with Nick Griffin’s expense claims?

Lib Dem MEP Chris Davies has spotted some rather odd entries in Nick Griffin’s expense claims from the European Parliament.

Nick Griffin had previously stalled on publishing his expenses but now he’s given in to the pressure there are some distinct oddities:

  1. Nick Griffin claims to have donated £5,575.91 to a fund that has only declared income of £4560.65.
  2. Nick Griffin has previously said he employs three members of staff, one of whom is shared with another MEP. However the expense claims list eight people, give no names and only one of their job titles matches previous public statements about who works for him.

As Chris Davies says,

The latest statement of expenses from Griffin has raised more questions than it has answered. He is claiming to be transparent but in reality the way he is spending taxpayers money is as clear as mud.

Quite.
