TS sometimes fills out exaggerated expense claims; firstly because being such a high profile gossip columnist, TS’s general bonhomie (and drinks bill) frankly ought to be expensed to those upstairs; secondly, well, because TS deserves it.
That was the defence used by another dodgy character, according to The Times today. Accountant Robert Grantham, The Thunderer reports, was jailed for two years for taking £100,000 from the Catholic Truth Society (why does that name sound suspicious in itself?) – ‘because he thought that he deserved it.’
Grantham used it to fund holidays, weddings, and to look after his grandmother.
TS sympathises – we’ve all got to live, after all.
