Poor old Rob Wilson, Conservative MP for Reading East, has been getting some stick lately for claiming 9p mileage on an expense claim.

The issue for me is not that he claimed the tiny sum of 9p but that he drove 0.2 miles. That’s a return journey of course, so 0.1 mile there and 0.1 mile back after the meeting.

0.2 miles, that’s about 321m.

Did he not consider walking?

Is Rob Wilson really that lazy?
