In the 2010 election Dismore failed to be re-elected following expenses scandal as it was reported that he claimed £34,000 for his second home, a flat in West London and then ‘flipped’ his designated second home, saying the West London flat had become his main residence, and claimed another £31,000. [3] Following this election loss, Dismore was handed a resettlement package of £54,403. Despite this payoff five years ago, Dismore has been recalled by the Labour Party to stand for the Hendon constituency again in the upcoming 2015 general election. [4]
