Johnny Mercer, a former Afghanistan soldier, had his boat brought up from Devon to River Thames so that he could sleep without paying in the capital while he would be on Parliament duty. The thirty-four year old told that it was very cheaper to sleep on his yacht near Canada Water instead of paying to rent a flat.

The Plymouth Moor View Conservative MP further added that he has been how to survive without any kind of central heating or a shower but insisted that he loves reminder of family life to a hotel room. This choice will led him to claim just £2400 per year in accommodation expenses, which is far less than the £23000 politicians with kids are entitled to.

Earlier this year, Mr Mercer joined the House of Commons after working as a captain with the 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery when he was in Afghanistan. He got the small Motor Cruiser after his military retirement and he calls it Pippa. It is named after his family’s dog which passed away in the year 2014.

In the weeks, following his unexpected election win, the rising star of Conservative party rented a room in a hotel. He also looked for taking a place permanently, but he was more than shocked coming the know the London prices.
