Tender Welsh Pork Costs Taxpayers

Interesting how the expense claims swilling by Welsh Assembly members breaks down by party:
Lib Dems AMs: Total : £55,321. Average : £9,220
Plaid Cymru AMs: Total : £129,936. Average: £8,662
Conservative AMs: Total: £93,730. Average : £7,810
Labour AMs: Total : £121,977. Average : £4,691

Why are LibDem piggies twice as expensive as Labour porkers?

Well done to Labour’s Lesley Griffiths who managed to get the taxpayers to pamper her sty with a £2,000 sofa, LibDem leader Mike German, claimed £9,217.10, for a second home despite living only 17 miles from the Assembly, Tory Nick Ramsey spent £1,000 on a top of the range TV system and more than £2,000 on two beds. Clearly pork needs to be treated tenderly…

They only awarded themselves an 8.3% pay-rise in March. Oink, oink!
