Is Liz Truss schmoozing her MPs with meals and drinks subsidised by you and me?

Liz Truss: is the evil Queen of Cheese even capable of charm?

Liz Truss is apparently going on a “charm offensive” (the “offensive” part I can believe, but I have trouble with the “charm” element), wining and dining her backbenchers to win support for her lunatic policies.

But is she charging these meals to the public purse?

Let’s go into that public subsidy element of the scheme in a little more detail, shall we?

It seems to This Writer that the cost of any schmoozing by Liz Truss should be met by Liz Truss. I don’t want Tory backbenchers supporting her madness so I don’t see why I should have to pay for it. And it seems I’m not alone…

It’s clear that the expenses system in Westminster is broken, and has been used to bleed money from the public to our elected representatives for a considerable amount of time. Oh, and also to our unelected representatives, it seems:

No, it isn’t hard to see where we are going wrong.

But how can we put it right when the people taking the cash have such a tight group on how it is controlled?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
