A den of thieves

When not busy stealing the public's money, the denizens of the Palace of Westminster make off with their colleagues' property:


Mr. Sanders: To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission how many articles have been reported stolen from the Palace of Westminster in the last 12 months; and what those items were.

Nick Harvey: From the latest statistical information collected, there were nine reported thefts from the Palace of Westminster in the last 12 months. Detailed information is given as follows:


One computer laptop; One digital camera; One set of golf clubs; One pair of candlesticks; and
five amounts of cash, all under £100.


If only that was the totality of rake I have to suffer annually....
