Another snout in the trough

I usually steer well clear of politics, but I think I may have spotted an opening for us divorce lawyers. According to The Times and others Culture Secretary Andy Burnham (how did we end up with a Culture Secretary called 'Andy'?) was so desperate to get an expenses claim paid to redecorate his flat that he "told the Fees Office that he “might be in line for a divorce” if he did not get the money quickly".

So, naturally I have now become a political animal (another pig perhaps?), and have joined the campaign to stop politicians from making expense claims. I shall be leaving my business card at the entrance to Westminster Palace.
