I simply cannot believe what the Labour MP says who continued to claim for his mortage after it had been paid off.
I very clearly remember my own parents having a party when they paid off their mortgage in the late 50s, and more recently, I know two other people who celebrated privately with an exceptional bottle of wine or two.
From my own point of view, assets,money, savings and loans are simply numbers, but Mrs. Lear was truly pleased when our own mortgage was paid off.
I simply cannot believe he didn't notice the DD not going out any more.
Mind you, our neighbour told me he never looked at his bank statements, he left all that sort of thing to his ex-wife.
I suspect she took him entirely to the cleaners and simply allows him pocket money.....
