Curtains for MPs’ expenses


I couldn’t help running a Wordle on the expense claims on the Guardian’s ‘MPs’ expenses in the news‘ spreadsheet. Appropriately, the first word is ‘curtains’ although presumably this refers to inappropriate expense claims for curtains rather than it being curtains forĀ  inappropriate expense claims.

Now let them get back to the job they are paid to do which is run our country so brilliantly for us.

Also very happy that David Howarth, my MP in Cambridge does not claim a second home allowance.

“He says he prefers to travel to and from Cambridge every day because it “keeps him in touch” with his family and his constituents”. BBC website.

Good on you David Howarth – and he travels second class on the train. Almsot enough to make me vote Lib Dem.
