Maude-y Money

Guido has not yet seen the Channel 4 Dispatches about the Westminster Gravy Train produced by the excellent Heather Brooke.   Will watch the 8pm repeat tonight. Francis Maude is exposed for abusing the expenses system to buy a second property yards away from the one he already owns.  Something that didn’t come out in the broadcast (Guido had it on his to-do list) was confirmation of a persistent rumour that the property was rented out to Tory researchers, who are  of course themselves paid out of parliamentary expenses.  Double dipping in the trough…

UPDATE : Am told it is on at 2.25 a.m.- will record it instead.
