Labour Blows £150,000 of Taxpayers' Cash to Help Out Pals

Ed BallsEven in opposition, Ed Balls is still finding ways to waste taxpayers’ money. New figures show a group of senior Labour MPs have claimed £151,474 on expenses paid to Gordon and Badley Communications, a PR firm run by two party acolytes.
