“He’s promised they will be reasonably priced..”

With a new regime for MP’s allowances on the cards Sinn Féin have, apparently, decided that their expensive rental agreements with an un-named Irish landlord for underused properties in London no longer represent best value for public money. Still no word on Adams’ additional utilities bill. Hotels will replace those rented properties. Just be careful which films you choose to view, guys.. But Martina Purdy has a question

He’s promised they will be reasonably priced – whatever they cost they couldn’t cost as much as the £500,000 chaulked up in rent over several years. Especially when Sinn Fein’s MPs were hardly ever in London as they don’t attend Parliament. One thing the statement didn’t say – what’s going to happen to the furnishings which include venetian blinds, and tv sets purchased by the taxpayer?
