How low can you go?

Pretty low is the answer...

Frank Cook (Stockton North) , a Labour backbencher has apologised for submitting an expenses claim for a £5 donation he made at a church service commemorating the Battle of Britain. Mr Cook made the offering in his Stockton North constituency in 2006 and submitted the claim with a handwritten note, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

The Labour MP said he did not recall submitting the claim - which was (for once) rejected by the Commons Fees Office - and that it was "a mistake" which makes a change from is 'being within the rules'...
