He is said to be returning a total of £1,526.50p which includes "an inadvertent duplication of a claim for fencing" which was paid for out of his second homes allowance. In an emailed statement an aide also said that Bob 'The Knob' had also "agreed to repay £575 in respect of a piece of furniture" and added: "Bob is extremely sorry for the two claims made in error, it was a genuine mistake."
Sadly the biggest mistake was putting this utter tool in charge of anything more than a whelk stall.
Does the MOD need a man who thinks its good form to take soldiers to court to reduce injury payments?
Slashing the money paid to injured soldiers.
Two injured servicemen could have their compensation payouts slashed following a ruling by appeal judges today.
The Court of Appeal has upheld, in part, a challenge by the MoD to awards made to Light Dragoon Anthony Duncan and Royal Marine Matthew McWilliams.
Earlier this year, the court heard legal argument to clarify the principles under which the armed forces compensation scheme should be administered.
As a result of today's decision, the two cases will go back to a compensation tribunal for reconsideration.
If ministers are successful, Cpl Duncan and Marine McWilliams' payouts could be slashed and future payments limited for other combat victims.
At the time of the hearing in July, Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth announced a review of the scheme would be speeded up, although the court's consideration of its current legal effect would continue.
Cpl Duncan was originally awarded £9,250, which was increased to £46,000 by the tribunal, and Marine McWilliams's £8,250 award was increased to £28,750.
The 27-year-old corporal was shot in Iraq in 2005 and overcame two years of rehabilitation to ship out in April this year with his Light Dragoons colleagues to fight in Afghanistan for six months.
Marine McWilliams fractured his thigh in training.
Whilst a tash wearing wanker called Bob "the knob" Ainsworth blags hundreds of thousands of pounds in expenses each and every year, the cunt.
I set this up as a protest against Bob Ainsworth, its not a bash at him for being a member of any political party but due to his being inept at his job.
On his watch as Armed Forces Minister, we have seen the troops let down with delays in helicopters getting to the battlefield, problems with supply of kit including body armour.
Whilst soldiers come back from a warzone in body bags, Bob wastes his time chasing soldiers through the courts to reduce payments given to them for fighting in a war and being injured in a war that he is in charge of.
He has even gone so far as to claim in The Commons that supply problems were "bollocks" and then blamed the public for problems claiming that they were defeatist.
Bob "the knob" Ainsworth in his own words.
"I'm such a victim, people attack me over my accent, my moustache... and because I'm no intellectual."
A description of Bob Ainsworth from The Times.
Bob Ainsworth is one of those people who should never rise above deputy. I am told that people are snobby about him but I am just confused. Every time I see him — and it happened again yesterday — I cannot believe that he is the Defence Secretary. How did this man, stodgy as porridge, inspiring as a cabbage, get the top job? It feels wrong, as if he were taking part in a job-swap reality TV programme that has gone horribly wrong.
