Tory snouts in trough – Eric Pickles

On 26 March 2009, Conservative MP Eric Pickles (Brentwood and Ongar) appeared on Question Time. Pickles admitted he claimed a second home allowance even though his constituency home was only 37 miles from Westminster. Pickles justified himself by saying ”the House of Commons works on clockwork. You have to be there. If you’re on a committee, you have to be there precisely.” Host David Dimbleby responded “Like a job, in other words?” Thus reflecting the reality that many of Pickles’ own constituents commute to London each day.
