Some more expense titbits

To be honest the whole expenses thing is getting a bit overwhelming and it is difficult to keep up even if I had the time to do so but there were one or two that caught my eye this morning that I thought were worth repeating if only to illustrate the state that things have come to.

The first one of course was the floating duck house. For goodness sake do these people have no commonsense? The Daily Telegraph has very helpfully provided a photograph of the structure and the view of it via Google Earth.

Meanwhile I note that the MP for Clwyd West, David Jones (a former Assembly Member, though he will not admit it too readily) has opened up his expenses for the Daily Post. They have decided that the star buy is a Sat Nav system for £339, which the MP said he bought after getting lost in his own constituency.

Such refreshing honesty should be its own reward.
It's unfortunate that SatNav's weren't around when John Morris was MP for Aberafan, he might have found himself in the constituency a bit more often
