Troughing Ministers, Troughing Tory MPs

No surprise to see the Wintertons voting to keep their troughs unaudited. Just to look at Tom Watson you know he obviously likes it at the trough. Surprised to see the likes of Jacqui Smith voting against auditing expenses. There were a hundred or so more backbench Labour MPs who voted to keep their snouts in the trough, that is to be expected: they are taking a “fill yer boots before we go” attitude.

UPDATE : Full list of all MPs who voted here. One shadow minister broke ranks and voted for unaudited greed – Andrew Rosindell – who is the shadow minister for dog catching or something. A job designed solely to keep him out of trouble.

UPDATE II : Have checked and all the LibDems managed to vote for more transparency.
