Pedigree chump?

Meet Curby, the Lhasa Apso. If he looks well fed, thank you. You apparently paid for his grub.

Curby's owner, shadow Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan, claimed £4.47 for dog food as part of her parliamentary expenses. She's now willing to pay the money back.

Her leader, David Cameron, has acknowledged that tomorrow will be a bad day for the Conservative Party: “We have to start by saying that the system we had and used was wrong and that we are sorry about that.”

Curby, alas, is no longer with us, having left for that great kennel in the sky.

David, it's so much more than the "system" being wrong...anyone in business or in employment knows when they are making legitimate claims and when just taking the p***.
