I just finished reading the story of Det Con Matthew Washington aged 37. He works as an anti terrorism officer, great job, keeping the country safe and all that.
But this guy has been caught fiddling his expenses just like the recent speight of MP’s. He had been issued with a Met Police plastic card to charge his work related travel and subsistence to.
In his case things got a little out of hand and he had run up £12,500 of unauthorised personal spending on his AmEx card in just over 15 months. He allegedly has run up personal debts totalling £50,000.
The thing that gets me is that this guy has managed to get away with spending on his card without having to submit any forms relating to his expenses claims.
That was bad enough, then I read that he had used the card to go on a spending spree in a Soho sex shop. Now that has to be taking the piss. Buying sex toys at the tax payers expense.
He is on trail and denies misconduct in a public office. Uhmm, I think he needs a reality check. lol
