Shadow Cabinet Minister Bungs Rent Expenses to GMB Union

With an MP’s constituency office rent expenses scandal coming, Guido can reveal the name of another shadow cabinet minister helping out his union mates with taxpayer cash. Shadow Welsh secretary Owen Smith has claimed up to £1,500-a-month in expenses to pay his constituency office rent. What is the address of his constituency office? That would be the subtly-named GMB House, on Morgan Street in Pontypridd. The GMB union can then effectively pay the £1,500-a-month of taxpayer cash back to Labour as part of their (soon to be reduced) £1.2 million donations to the party. Taxpayer funding of political parties and their donors through the back door. Expect many more of these in the coming weeks…

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
