MP's off to save the climate by flying off to the South Pacific at your expense.

Nice to see that Speaker an Tory drip John Bercow is getting tough on MP expenses and freebies:
A group of MP and peers enjoyed a £65,000 jaunt to the South Pacific at the public’s expense.
The delegation took business class flights for a 16-day visit to a number of South Sea islands.

They stayed in a five-star hotel on Fiji for seven days and enjoyed the resort’s lagoon-style pool and white, sandy beach.

The tour, by members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, was a ‘fact-finding’ exercise on climate change.

Six MPs and two peers were flown to Fiji via Australia. They also visited Tonga, Kiribati and Vanuatu. The CPA’s British branch, which is funded by a grant from Westminster, paid for flights to Australia and connections to Fiji at £6,300 each.

The group were Tory MP Andrew Rosindell (Romford), Labour MPs Meg Munn (Sheffield Heeley), Jim Sheridan (Paisley and Renfrewshire North), Betty Williams (Conwy), Neil Turner (Wigan) and Colin Challen (Morley and Rothwell); Liberal Democrat peer Lord Roper of Thorney Island and Labour’s Lord Lea of Crondall.

But Mr Challen defended the trip: ‘Kiribati and Tonga are both members of the Commonwealth which have deep concerns about climate change. ‘Should we just ignore them?’
You could have saved your carbon footprint by using video conferencing, oh hang on that would have deprived you Rt Hon. cunts of a free holiday at our expense, you cunt.
