Miliband’s one man internet rebuttal team used Prescott earlier in an attempt to shut down any debate about the minimum wage. Unfortunate timing for them though as this morning we learn that Prezza is earning nearly £800 per day in Lords expenses. The £10,016 claimed seems extortionate given he clocked in for just thirteen working days. Around £121.50 a day, was for ‘overnight subsistence’ while a further £1,125 went on ‘day subsistence’, covering food and travel. The rest was on staff.
If Prezza is so concerned about the minimum wage, perhaps he would like to lead from the front and take a pay cut?
