Is Bailey fit to be an MP?

An extraordinary defence by Shaun Bailey of his charity's unaccounted for expenses (see blog below) in today's Times:

Mr Bailey told The Times yesterday that the charity had been unprepared to deal with its rapidly growing budget. “We had a little panic, we have the stuff,” he said. “What you are dealing with is a kid from the estate who had a good idea to do this and never had a wider view of accountants and lawyers. We have raised this money, spent it on the kids. We just didn’t know.”

Where has the £16k gone, Shaun?

Come on Andy?

You mean the politician who stood, tears-in-his-eyes, waving placards in support of his local post office to stay open... and then subsequently voted in parliament to shut it down.

No thanks.

Shaun Bailey might not be a great choice for MP, but I can assure you that 'Andy' Slaughter is most definitely not.
