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.

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.
