The fiddle of having a wife/son/daughter/niece/pet dog/pet cat/ pet budgie on the government (read publicly paid taxes) payroll as 'adviser/reserarcher' may just start to crumble. But I'm not holding my hopes too high on this score - very adept and pontificating and prevaricating are our pollies !!
Anyone see Brown trying to blame the Tories for possible coming recession in Parliament today ? Got short shrift on that from the opposite benches.
He even tried to claim that Defence spending has been the best for years (my words) !
