It's always so coincidental

One of our favourite FibDem Ministers, the nice and caring George Lyon, has got himself into some bother with his driving again.

However, instead of having to pay out for being behind the wheel George has been getting paid for not being behind the wheel:
Minister in car mileage claim 'error'

A HOLYROOD minister has claimed he made a mistake after records of his expenses showed he was charging for mileage on the same day as he was on a taxpayer-funded trip to America.

Deputy finance minister George Lyon submitted expense claims for two car journeys in early April 2005 to the Scottish Parliament and around his constituency.

Yet on the same two days, he was visiting the US as part of the official MSP delegation to the annual Tartan Week celebrations.
Of course George has insisted he made a mistake and the form had been filled in incorrectly.

Now where have we heard that before? Oh mortgages.

Of course it's not as if Edinburgh housing allowances of MSPs would be something other FibDems would be embroiled in? Is it?

Whatever next? Questions about large scale donations by developers to the party with power over planning?

One would think this was a party with major donors in jail wouldn't they?

Could that be why they are so keen on this?

Finding a venue for the FibDem's next conference was far easier than the last time

Their new conference centre is filling up. Why does no paper see the patterns and really expose them for the chancers they are?
