New figures sneaked out by the Treasury today reveal that Gordon Brown’s staff have spent nearly half a million pounds on Eurostar trips in one year. The £463,455 bill for 2,750 tickets means return trips are costing the taxpayer around £337. Return tickets in standard class cost as little as £30.The Treasury took five months to answer the question, and slipped it out this morning whilst attention is focused on the local elections.
On Vox Politix last night Labour commentator Scarlett McGwire reckoned that the age of spin was over and Gordon Brown wouldn't indulge in it. Yeah, right!
