Another Labour MP Caught in Union Cash Merry-Go-Round

Last week Guido reported how Luciana Berger was charging the taxpayer thousands of pounds for her constituency office rent while working out of a building owned by a union that donates to the Labour Party. Now Mandrake has caught Geoffrey Robinson, he of Mandy scandal fame, doing exactly the same thing:

This is a scam used by Labour MPs to, perfectly legally, funnel taxpayer cash to a donor who then gives money back to the party. If the Tories did the equivalent, claiming taxpayers’ money to pay rent to a private donor who then gave money back to the party, it would be a major scandal. How many other Labour MPs are doing this and getting away with it?
