Oink, oink, oink ...

It's only a handful of bad apples, you know:

Alistair Darling has claimed thousands of pounds in expenses on his family home despite owning a London flat which he rents out - and living in a grace-and-favour apartment in Downing Street.

The Chancellor - the man in charge of the nation's finances - has repeatedly changed the designation of his 'main home' over recent years, the Daily Mail has learned.

The switches enabled him to charge the taxpayer thousands of pounds towards both his £1.2million Edinburgh townhouse and a new London apartment.

In addition, he has been pocketing cash from rent.

It's all within the rules, you know! There are only a handful of bad apples, you know! Politicians work hard, you know!

Lies, lies, lies. You motherfuckers are stealing from us, you're bullying us and you're making our lives a fucking misery. I can't find the words to express my burning rage.

Death by 1000 cuts would be too fucking kind for the lot of you.

Update: Guido has a go.

As does the Penguin. Did I beat him this time?

Update 2: Timmy identifies another possible porkie.
