London - (Cash-for-Plonkers): Prime Monster Gorgon Brown's top House of Lords cheerleader Lord 'Ron' Paul is being probed about a £38,000 expenses scam.
Paul, 69, claimed the money for maintaining a bijou Westmonster apartment in a plush portered block, suspected of having been demolished in 1972.
But all the time he was living at his Lake Michael Jackson, Texas ranch and trying to become President of the United States.
And of course nobody ever noticed the discrepancy.
Sources close to Labour Whips' Orifice suggested today that Paul 'may have been hedging his bets' .
The House of Lords Deputy Speaker has given barrowloads of cash to the UK Labour Party ever since its Bernard Madoff Hedge Fund income dried up in dubious circumstances.
