That's the point Melvin. If it were You or I having to work late we would either have to travel home or look for a cheap hotel - either way funding the cost out of our paypacket. This joker however, who is hardly on a minimum wage, expects us to pay for his costs. Part of the reason MPs receive above average earnings is out of respect that they do incur the occassional extra cost such as this, but Shapps wants cream on top of his jam.
Sorry Grant - but you can expect no sympathy for expecting the taxpayer to pay you uncapped benefits.
