Tim Loughton's Taxpayer Funded Retirement Fishing Trip

When he’s not being questioned by the cops for being rude to gypsies, former DfE minister Tim Loughton is dreaming up new ways to embarrass his old boss Michael Gove. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, Loughton has sent in 87 awkward written questions to the department since he was given the chop. He is right to have a go at the police for wasting taxpayer cash, but given that it costs on average £164 to answer each question, FoI data estimates DfE have spent £14,268 on Loughton’s retirement fishing trip. Revenge is a dish that does not come cheap.
