MPs' Expenses: Treasury chief David Laws, his secret lover and a £40,000 claimMPs' Expenses: Treasury chief David Laws, his secret lover and a £40,000 claim

The Cabinet minister charged with rescuing the Government’s finances has used taxpayers’ money to pay more than £40,000 to his long-term partner, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

By Holy Watt-Watt and Rupert Winnick

David Laws, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, claimed up to £950 a month for eight years to rent rooms in two properties owned by his partner. The claims could be against parliamentary rules governing MPs’ second home expenses.

On Friday night, Mr Laws apologised and announced that he would “immediately” pay back tens of thousands of pounds claimed for rent and other housing costs between 2006 and 2009. He also referred himself to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner.

Mr Laws said: “I regret being caught deeply, and have referred myself to a group of fellow Oxbridge public schoolboys for condign punishment. I don't mean to use my homosexuality as an excuse for ripping off the tax-payer, but I would like to show you a picture of Oscar Wilde weeping at the entrance to Reading gaol."

By the time the Tory Right and MI5 have finished, only Clogg will be left standing in the coalition of the Whigs.

The replacement Liberal clay pigeon has been launched - and, yes, he's already firmly in the sights of the Tory gunmen:
