Massaging the figures

Asked why he needed to spend £730 on a massage chair, [Justice Minister] Mr Malik said it was a "legitimate expenditure" that he was allowed to make.

He said he went "one million per cent by the book" when he designated the house he rents in Dewsbury as his main home. (From the piece linked in Esmerelda's post)

The usual figure quoted by out-of-box-thinking, extra-half-mile-goers is "one hundred and ten percent". "One million per cent" is protesting too much, and gives the opposite impression to the one of strict frugality surely intended.

Besides, which book is that? The Koran, which places, as far as I know, no limit on the jizyah that can be extracted from the infidel?
