Ah Ha at long last the establishment is getting involved in the 'Snouts in the Trough' saga. 'Newsnight' addressed it tonight and I suspect there are many MPs are squirming in embarrassment at the thought that their greed could now be exposed. I revisited the MPs Spreadsheet provided by Guido Fawkes (by the way thanks for the mention Guido) and concentrated on Air Fairs.
Now I did say in my original blog that it was an inexact science but one has to say that Rosie Winterton from Doncaster racking up £13906 on air fares in one year does seem excessive even though she is a Minister of State for the Dept of Transport.
I also mentioned Phil Woollas from Oldham even though he is the Minister for (Wait for it) Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and so I should possibly excuse his PPS Nia Griffith (Llanelli) who racked up £12557 in Air fares. They obviously like to take to the skies on a regular basis.
The one I cannot understand becaue he is not a Minister of any state or even on the government front bench is Rob Wilson (Con) from Reading who clocked up an astonishing £13702 in air fares. Am I being unfair or can anyone explain this?
