Labour MP Paul Flynn has recently had his "communications allowance" cut after taking the Michael out of a number of other MPs, from various parties, in a "magnificently rude" manner: BBC News The fact that "MPs voted last year to give themselves a Â£10,000 allowance to spend on boosting the public understanding of Parliament through websites and other publicity material" is probably another debate to be had on the Number 7 Outrage Bus (Westminster), and the bloke made no issue of paying the Â£250pa in this instance himself, but it appears that no-one in Parliament wants to face a bit of ribbing. Maybe the truth hurts? Either way, cries of "censorship" are being spouted around Westminster and the Welsh Assembly. As Mr Flynn himself puts it: Indeed Sir - given there aren't too many nice things you can pick up about politicians. I hope he does keep his blog running, if it means hearing just how cnutish your average politician is direct from the horse's mouth. Now, how much impact are his comments likely to make on the running of our country and what does Mr Flynn stand to gain from this little stunt?
