MP Uses Taxpayers Money on Self Promotion - Again!

Oh dear, Labour just do not get public anger over expenses, do they. As if it wasn't bad enough that last year the local Labour MP spent nearly £10,000 of taxpayer's money on self-promotion we now have another example of it today.


I have just been sent a copy, from a very angry resident, of another communication funded by taxpayers which has been delivered in the south of the Isle of Axholme. Yet again, it has been funded from the taxpayer via the Communications Allowance. Why won't the local MP learn, he can't get away with using our money to promote himself locally. It's just not right.

I suppose what makes it worse is that most of the issues in the newsletter are ones we have updated people on already, via our non-taxpayer funded communications. Some of them are weeks out of date. It just proves what I have been told by certain people within the Labour Party locally, they have no network locally and so rely on taxpayer funded communications instead.

I certainly won't be using taxpayers money to try to buy the next election. It's a shame Labour seem happy to try though.
