Howard Turns on the Telegraph
The Daily Telegraph may have done a service in publicising the depth of MPs expense abuses, but their callow political editor, Andrew Porter, gave a deeply unimpressive performance on the Daily Politics show today, when confronted by Michael Howard. Porter was unable, or unwilling, to answer Howard's specific question, and seemed to wilfully misinterpret Howard's basic point about how he funded his MP surgeries. One gets the impression that, whoever is behind the Telegraph coup, it can't surely be the barely articulate former McBride groupie Porter. Can it?
