Grunt, grunt, snuffle.

In brief: Public pays millions towards party offices - Times Online

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.....

It sounds legal enough, but that doesn't make it any less bizarre.
