INTERESTING hustings for the Hampstead and Kilburn parliamentary seat last night. More soon. The only shame of it all was that half an hour was spent talking about – yet again – the expenses row again.
There was even mention of duck houses and moats, as if we hadn’t heard about all of that a squillion times. Of course, it has been an important debate and changes to the expenses system are vital, but jokes about moat-clearing are now achingly dull. The discussion was much better when it switched to Afghanistan, the economy and immigration.
