Grunt, grunt, snuffle.
Britain’s main political parties are receiving millions of pounds in public money for renting offices to their own MPs (Francis Elliott writes).
It emerged that a quarter of MPs paid to hire party-owned offices out of their expenses, and that the rents were significantly higher than those paid by MPs to independent landlords. The Conservative Party collected £737,995 in rent from its MPs in 2006-07, compared with £376,975 by Labour and £186,682 by the Liberal Democrats.
"Significantly higher" eh? Reminds me, it is time to go out on the farm and feed the pigs.....
