Wencher Drencher Dripping with Sarcasm mdi-fullscreen

The “Romsey Redhead”, Sandra Gidley MP claimed £50,000 more in expenses than her neighbouring Hampshire MP.  For some reason she seems to resent the new rules on making full declarations about payments in kind, judging by the sarky piece on her blog about her latest declaration:

gidleyI was asked to spend some time on the “wencher drencher” for charity. The event – on 5th July – was organised by the Rotary Club of Romsey Test and total work time was approximately 25 minutes. This consisted of 5 minutes to get changed. 15 minutes sitting on the device, waiting for people to hit a target and then getting tipped into water a number of times and 10 minutes drying off and getting changed afterwards. A gentleman presented me with a punnet of strawberries (value £1.50) for my efforts but I am afraid it would have seemed rather rude to ask his full name and address so I didn’t.

Pictures would have been appreciated.
