Tory Ladies Expenses Blue on Blue Jackie Doyle Price Shuns Expenses Piggy Helen Grant

Helen Grant may have sacked her part time researcher/husband in the wake of a turning over by Dispatches for her expenses and property rent-swapping, but the Equalities Minister is not out of trouble yet. Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle Price has humiliated her fellow 2010 Tory by refusing to share a platform with her at an event in constituency. Grant was visiting the town hall and Doyle put the boot in:

“I only heard she was coming on the grapevine, but chose not to go as I disapprove of Helen Grant’s expense claims and I don’t really wish to be associated with that kind of behaviour.”

Nice to see principles before party politics for once.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
