UK Citizens are Paying Some Politicians Energy Bills for Their Second Homes

According to the BBC News tonight some of our dedicated politicians who serve the public, are serving themselves, with charging tax-payers for their gas and electricity! What makes it worst is the charges are for their “SECOND HOMES” and while people who are elderly and fuel poor struggle!
This reminds me of the days of “Scrooge” treating people as second class citizens, disgraceful!
