I WRITE in connection with the statement in The Hunts Post by Jonathan Djanogly regarding his expenses (April 28).

I would firstly have to say that he has not broken the law by claiming any of the expenses he has declared, further to that he has not broken any of the "rules" in claiming the expenses declared. I do, however, have an issue with continued stance of "I have done nothing wrong". This indignant approach is beyond belief to a lot of the electorate in this district.

He may have done nothing wrong legally but in my opinion he is morally wrong, he has claimed expenses far more lavish than the scheme was set up to deal with, although he has paid back some of the money. One of the reasons the "rules" for claiming expenses were so loose was that the assumption must be that the elected public servants were supposed to be responsible, reliable, reasonable and honourable.

How wrong could we have been!

Mr Djanogly must accept that he may have not broken any laws or "rules" but has breached the unwritten moral code that is expected of our MP and therefore lost the trust of a large number of the electorate. I have voted Conservative all my voting life, but will not be able to vote for them in a General Election again until this person is removed from office.
