It was a little more than that, actually. He's claimed £2 million in expenses as an MEP in the past four years, on top of his £64,000 per year salary.
(And then there are the UKIP guys who were done for fraud, as I mentioned earlier on in the thread - one of them for benefit fraud, the other one arrested for defrauding his MEP expenses, because presumably two million quid wasn't enough for him...)
So yeah - you need to take what they say with a very, very big pinch of salt.
