Madeleine Moon Labour MP for Bridgend

Madeleine Moon just loves to shop.
With other peoples money

Fair play for Labour MP, Madeleine Moon ( who sucked up up £64,766 in salary and then topped it up with £253,397 in expense claims for last year alone), she done right by Wales and said that any money she claimed for expenses was spend in Wales to "bring money into the Welsh Economy".
“I bought the majority of my goods in Wales during the summer recess of 2005 in places like Crazy Macs and Dunelm Mills in Swansea, Ikea in Cardiff and Currys in Bridgend."
Hmm. Dunelm Mills is based in Manchester. Would that be in North Wales? Ikea, that is based in Delft, Holland and Currys is based in Hertfordshire. Way to go home girl.

Ms Moon, also denied claims that she had spend thousands of taxpayers cash furnisher her constinuency home and then shipping it all off to London.

Well here are her expenses. You decide if she did furnish her home or not.
