I was taken to task a couple of days ago (see below) for my suggestion that LibDem MEP Andrew Duff's expenses might come under close scrutiny. I was pleased to see the EDP confirm my suspicions his morning. And he didn't even have the good grace to admit being caught out. Integrity is the most important thing a politician has. I am going to make a speech tomorrow night in Blakeney highlighting the importance of integrity, truth and honesty in politics. I shall be making a commitment that if I am elected I shall not solicit or accept outside directorships and I shall publish all expenses and expenditure I make through my parliamentary activities.
