Weekend News Reports on 'Grasping MPs'

Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk appears in a Sunday Mirror list of "grasping MPs" that have claimed '£800,000 in freebies in the last 12 months'.

The Mirror investigation has revealed MPs have claimed for gig tickets, helicopter rides and sporting events despite their £74,000 salaries.

Mr Danczuk accepted two sets of tickets and hospitaility to the Rugby World Cup valued at £875 and £1,650 in 2015.

In taking the freebies, Mr Danczuk did not break any rules, however campaigners warned it could increase voters’ fears their elected representatives are listening to wealthy donors instead of them.
