Gordon Brown - My Fake Diary
Sunday, 19 August 2012
I read this in the Telegraph:
Gordon Brown has spent nearly £20,000 of his parliamentary expenses on flying between London and Edinburgh, despite rarely appearing in the House of Commons. Rules allow MPs to claim for the cost of travelling between London and their constituency homes if they are on parliamentary business.
However the former prime minister has only spoken in the Commons on three occasions since May 2010.
Mr Brown has also participated in only 15 per cent of parliamentary votes since the 2010 election, according to an analysis by the politics website publicwhip.co.uk.
In all, he has claimed £19,237 in parliamentary expenses on air travel between London and Edinburgh between June 29 2010 and Jan 23, 2012.
