Can you see anything wrong with this ?

See Suz Blog here about a Lib Dem councillor still claiming his GBP700/month councillors allowance whilst studying in Arizona !!!

If you can't see anything wrong with this then your probably a Lib Dem !

Then there was the Labour councillor in Spain, and the Tory who moved 400 miles away and tried to claim the travel expences. So just about evry party has had one.

Anon - a fair comment.

Not to mention that this Lib Dem resigned anyway.

Non story.

Anon - sorry that's not true as the link I have to the Lib Dem leaning blog points out.

He resigned when he was caught out, otherwise there would have been no talk about doing his work by email or phone from Arizona.

Assuming you believe the Evening Standard over the BBC then yes he resigned when he was caught out.

Well I was going on Suz's blog, she seems well informed.

Noticed the comments here.

Philip has resigned since the story broke. See my later post on Sunday 14th.

Yes I do know Philip very well. I helped him get elected. He lived just across the road from me and before he 'disappeared' I saw him most days. Many people are disappointed at his behavour.

There is no date for the by-election yet.

Your comment shows why I occasionally drop by your blog Suz - you show a high degree of integrity - even when the news isn't what you'd want.
