When the cat’s away…

…the mouse watches dirty movies, apparently.
The Home Secretary’s husband has said sorry for embarrassing his wife after two adult films were viewed at their home, then claimed for on expenses.
Richard Timney, who is also Jacqui Smith’s parliamentary aide, said he understood why people might be angry.
Ms Smith said she “mistakenly” claimed for a TV package when billing for a web connection and would repay the cash.
Downing Street said she had done the “right thing” by quickly rectifying the “inadvertent mistake”.
The Home Secretary is already under investigation by the parliamentary commissioner for standards over her use of the second homes allowance.”
