    The former Labour minister Denis MacShane has been jailed for six months after admitting making nearly £13,000 of bogus expenses… He used the money to fund a series of trips to Europe, including one to judge a literary competition in Paris.

    MacShane…said…”Quelle surprise” as he was led from the dock.
    Ah, well, at least he picked up a bit of the lingo when he was in France so it wasn’t all wasted…

    One delivery of Irony coming right up:

    He worked for the BBC from 1969 to 1977,[11] including as a newsreader and reporter on Wolverhampton Wanderers for BBC Radio Birmingham. He changed his surname to his mother’s maiden name at the request of his employers. He was fired by the BBC after using a fake name to call the radio phone-in programme he worked on at the time. During the call, MacShane accused leading Conservative politician Reginald Maudling of being a crook, with the MP threatening to sue as a result.

    Strange how all of the people guilty of criminal levels of theft from the former expenses system were all good old-fashioned socialists.

    Barons Harringfield and Taylor would be surprised to hear themselves described as socialists.
