Thames Pilgrim

is how someone called Guy Robinson tweets, and he says this:

I note that my current MP, Martin Salter, both voted against the Iraq war (saying there was no moral case) and has a clean expenses record.

Oh dear. How they are deceived. No he didn't. He said he had, but he abstained. And he does not have a clean expenses record. He claimed over 40K in four years for a London property he did not have. Still, never let the facts get in the way, etc etc

What is forgotten also is Salters own expenses gaff, when he had to pay back thousands.

'He posted to a number of constituents in pre-paid House of Commons envelopes, a breach of the Stationery and Postage Rules;
the report's imprint did not state that it had been funded from Mr Salter's Parliamentary allowances; and the report arguably promoted the re-election of a councillor in the May 2007 local elections by featuring a picture of him.'
