A woman reads a copy of the Daily Telegr

A woman reads a copy of the Daily Telegraph newspaper in London, on May 21, 2009. Britain's political expenses row threw up a new embarrassing revelation Thursday, as an opposition lawmaker was forced to quit after claiming 1,600 pounds (2,500 dollars, 1,800 euros) for a 'duck island.' The latest resignation emerged as Prime Minister Gordon Brown defended two of his ministers in the spotlight over expenses claims. A string of revelations over the past two weeks has rocked British politics. Senior Conservative MP Sir Peter Viggers bought the wooden structure -- providing a comfortable retreat for ducks in the middle of a garden pond -- for his home in Hampshire, southern England, The Daily Telegraph newspaper said.
