Hames Homes Hypocrisy

LibDem Duncan Hames got down and dirty in 2010, blasting his Tory opponent for being “a Devon farmer who splits his time between his three homes, leaving him out of touch with local people”. Five years on and the MP defending a perilous 2,000 majority has done rather well for himself during his time in parliament.

Hames declares on his Statement of Persons Nominated that he lives at an address in Holt, in his Chippenham constituency.

His wife, fellow LibDem MP Jo Swinson, discloses on her election forms that she lives in Bearsden, in her East Dumbartonshire constituency. Mr and Mrs Hames either live separate lives or must be spending time at each other’s ‘main’ homes.

Swinson also claims on expenses for another property in London, where they live together during the week.

Five years after attacking his opponent for the very same thing, Hames is now: “Splitting his time between his three homes, leaving him out of touch with local people…”
