Show Us Your Expenses Nick

Nick Robinson seems quite chuffed with himself, having managed to provoke fifty odd MPs into signing an EDM after his well deserved dig at the Speaker:

THE REPORTING OF MR NICK ROBINSON

25.02.2008

Kilfoyle, Peter

That this House deplores the innuendo of the blog of Nick Robinson, the BBC’s lobby correspondent; calls upon him to substantiate the imputations he makes in his blog concerning the Speaker and hon. Members; and also calls upon the BBC to publish a full, itemised account of the expenses of Mr Robinson, in the name of transparency and accountability of public funds.

Nick accepts that “If you ladle it out, you’ve got to take it, as the old saying goes.”

Well let Guido dish it out a little more to our favourite public service broadcaster. This Freedom of Information request has just been submitted to the BBC’s FoI unit.

Dear Sirs,

Please could you send me, by return as soon as possible, a full, itemised account of the expenses of Mr Nick Robinson, in the name of transparency and accountability of public funds.

Am particularly interested in the itemised receipts for Shepherds, Le Caprice and The Atrium restaurants.

There is considerable public interest in this as evidenced by the Early Day Motion 1037* signed by over 50 members of parliament.

Please acknowledge receipt by return.

Yours faithfully,

G. Fawkes

Although Guido is with Nick on this, it should be a bit of fun to see his wine choices. Before you ask, Guido spends nearly all his pocket money on booze, the rest is wasted…

UPDATE : Curly reckons Nick is beginning to sound like Guido. Say it ain’t so…
