Owned: Scrounging skinflint Tory Nigel Adams gets what he deserves

Nigel Adams: He only recently resigned as a government minister so there’s not much he can do in recompense for this goof.

Labour has announced that, the next time the party is voted into office, it will extend the adult living wage to cover people aged 16 and 17. That means it will be £10 per hour.

This didn’t go down well with Nigel Adams, the Conservative MP for Selby and Ainsty in North Yorkshire, whose political career (so far) has been conspicuously inconspicuous. He was a Wales Office minister and a government whip, but resigned over Theresa May’s Brexit talks with Theresa May.

“Why not throw in a free iPad and free Spotify subscription?” he sneered on Twitter.

Why not indeed?

After all, as Rob Thompson made perfectly clear – with an illustration: “You bought a keypad for £169 and then made US BLOODY PAY FOR IT!

Yes indeed. It was all in the expenses account. He charged the taxpayer for that so, if Labour did thrown in a free iPad and Spotify subscription, he wouldn’t have a leg to stand on if he opposed it.

Labour isn’t planning to throw in a free iPad and Spotify subscription, to the best of This Writer’s knowledge.

So when the legislation comes around to extend the living wage to £10 per hour for everyone aged 16 onwards, it’s good to know Mr Adams will support it. Right?
