BDTN Apologises to Nadhim Zahawi for any mistakes that were made in this post that was originally posted on http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=619_1437121336#uSrbgLM0IBq0w84P.99


The Tory who made the highest claim in the MP energy expenses scandal has admitted taxpayers’ money was spent on a business at his country estate.
Millionaire Nadhim Zahawi claimed for electricity to run his horse riding school stables and a yard manager’s mobile home.
MPs are not barred from running businesses from their second homes but are only allowed expenses linked to their work in Parliament.
Mr Zahawi – top of a list of 340 MPs shamed by the Sunday Mirror last week – at first, defended his claims but now admits he made a “mistake”.
He told us: “On investigation I have made a mistake with the electricity. I will be paying back any money wrongly claimed immediately and I apologise ­unreservedly.”
The politician, who claimed almost £6,000 in just one year for energy bills, revealed power for the mobile home and stables was linked to his house.
He said: “While a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill and had not deducted usage on that meter from my claims.”
But his apology was not enough for Labour MP John Mann, who has not claimed energy expenses.
He said: “If one of my constituents had done this they would have been expecting a knock on the door from the police.
“If the Sunday Mirror hadn’t exposed it I don’t think Mr Zahawi would have been handing back the money.
“IPSA need to look at this and find out why it wasn’t spotted.”
