Here is the info: Thanks Chris ...
___________________________________________________

What amount was claimed?

TOP CLAIMANT: Caerphilly council leader Harry Andrews
TODAY, we reveal how much councillors from Blaenau Gwent and Caerphilly received in expenses and allowances last year.

On Saturday, we reported that Gwent councillors received a total of more than 4.28 million in 2005/6 - a figure which is 8.6 percent up on the previous year.

Caerphilly council leader Harry Andrews came out top claiming the most in allowances and expenses at more than 44,700.

Today, our figures show that Blaenau Gwent council leader John Hopkins received more than 38,900 in allowances and expenses.

continued...
In total, Blaenau Gwent council members received more than 718,000, but they claimed the lowest amount in travel and subsistence expenses at just under 7,000.

Caerphilly councillors received more than 1.12 million. But the authority has 73 members - after the former Islwyn and Rhymney Valley merged at the last council re-election - a larger number than the other authorities.

Well well well and thats not 3 holes in the ground
WHAT can we say?
WHAT do we get for this in there pockets?
WHAT do they do for us?
IF YOU CAN TELL ME I would be interested to know. I guess this is another reason to charge us with spy chips in our bins for taking our rubbish away. Mind if the councillors are in the bins at collection time the cost of emptying them may be worh it in the long run.

----------------------------

So how exactly did John Hopkins and the councillors spend the 713,000, s*x shops and brothels, exotic holidays abroad, fancy restaurants, or even nights out on the town? I guess we may never know, or are itemised accounts available as how the money was spent?

Continuing our discussion about councillors expenses, can you tell from these photos which councillors are using Viagra?

Hint:
Look for a big smile, like this
