Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron has placed his expenses claims from recent years in the front window of his Dinnington office, which show he asked for money solely to cover his mortgage and bills.
Putting one’s expenses in the window isn’t really effective communication with the whole constituency is it?
I suspect that come the election Kevin Barron will do rather more than put up a poster in the constituency office, because he knows that isn’t really going to get his message out there.
There isn’t much detail in the Star report – in fact the bit I have quoted is all it says about Kevin Barron – which suggests he may have published his expenses under the borad categories that have been available for some time, rather than a detailed breakdown.
However, as I don’t live or work in Dinnington, I have no way of knowing.
