As a councillor I claim no expenses. I think it is important that money is spent well. As you will see from this newspaper article in January 2009 I have a long record of camapigning to cut back on councillors perks.

After every full Thanet District Council meeting there is a free buffet and free alcoholic drinks.

I never attend this.

I think the free food and drink should stop.

As a life member of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), you may find me in  a nearby pub afterwards…. buying my own refreshments!
