Hoon Fiddles Expenses “In Accordance With The Rules”

On Sky on Sunday Geoff Hoon was droning on in that New Labour speak of his when he was challenged about claiming £72,000 in expenses while the outgoings on his Derbyshire home were around £35,000. He became very animated and basically told the interviewer to sod off and mind his own business. So it is clearly true.

Today he claims Britain has the most “aggressive, dismissive and intrusive” media. Not intrusive enough methinks. If the media were only more aggressive perhaps we would not have a system whereby a member of the government openly and insouciantly fiddles his expenses without being called a crook in the press.

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
