You may wonder what costs so much. Well amongst the other entries, it seems that the Taxpayer is picking up the bill for Conservative members away days :-


6/11/2010 Travel Members' car mileage - London Councils Conservative Group Away Day at Westminster City Hall, SW1 £11.44
26/11/2010 Travel Congestion Charge - London Councils Conservative Group Away Day at Westminster City Hall, SW1 £8.00

I don't see why the London Taxpayer should subsidise Tory Away Days. Interestingly his Tory Colleagues haven't claimed for this

It all seems to be Taxi fares or Member's car mileage. Was the underground out of order on all the days he travelled? Or is the fat councillor not able to stomach public travel?
