    Irish republicans siphoning UK money to serve their communities. Hardly shocking and came up before a few years ago when their MPs expenses were questioned. I have more of an issue with politicians who use expenses to enrich themselves personally.

      Yeah. Pure tabloid fodder. I mean it as a compliment. Punny bylines and acting as the base for me to polish my shoes on are the only things that the red tops are good for.

      Excellently done.
