Richard Drax’s 7,000-acre Morden Estate got £13,830 from Purbeck council, South Dorset, last year. A Morden spokesman said: “We don’t comment on these things.”
So I will make a comment; one of the many ‘austerity’ measures Mr Drax voted on was: on 12 Nov 2013: Richard Drax voted in favour of reducing housing benefit for those deemed to have excess bedrooms.
So if Mr Drax received those monies, which of course is taxpayer’s money, and I suspect he may have a few ‘excess bedrooms’ in his Charborough pile, is there not a case for reducing his benefits?
Keep on keeping on, love Duncan.
