Could the nurses not just dip into their trust funds??
Tory MP Simon Clarke, who earns £84,000 a year, says skint nurses using food banks need to budget better.
He's got some front as he's claimed £200,700 expenses in just ONE year.
He even claimed £7.65 to send a document to a constituent by recorded post 🤔https://t.co/b6FjiYpBt3

Simon Clarke had a silver spoon in his mouth since birth. Yarm School. Oxford. Slaughter & May. Straight into the life of an MP. The absolute epitome of privilege. Yet he has the nerve to accuse hardworking nurses struggling to make ends meet of poor budgeting. Patronising.

Quick posts are a new feature I am testing out. As the name suggests, they are short posts, normally just a link, tweet or video. I know we miss some stories, so this will let us cover a topic without having to spend an hour writing 600 words of polished prose.
