On Tuesday MPs debated a new communications allowance. Jack Straw is the Leader of the House and led the debate which saw MPs voting themselves a Â£10K a year comms allowance. This will allow them to spend Â£10K each telling us how great they are.
I am happy to say that almost all the Tories voted against it although two did not: Quentin Davies and Bob Spink. What a couple of boobies? All the Labour MPs voted for except for two: Kelvin Hopkins and Lynne Jones. The LibDems were typically conflicted but some of the more sensible ones like David Laws and Chris Hune voted against.
Our three local Labour MPs, Khabra, Pound and Slaughter, all voted for their extra cash. Shame on them.
