While so many go without and jobs lost, Labours Deputy leader Angelia Rayner decides to slap the taxpayer with a bill for £2,367 for top of the range Apple equipment, including brand new Apple AirPod Pros.

It seems Angela wasn’t the only one slapping the taxpayer with extortionate bills.

Reported in The Sun, all MP’s were given £10,000 from the taxpayer’s purse to spend on top of the range home office equipment over the pandemic period. That’s on top of their top wages, and other taxpayers funded perks.

John O’Connell, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “No doubt all this spending will be ‘within the rules’.

“But MPs should be asking themselves if it was necessary when millions of Brits may face unemployment.”

The questions remains, is it really necessary for MPs to get such a high lump sum of money to spend on home office luxuries at a time of deep hardship for millions?
