A new political party is being launched today at Westminster. The name is Trust and the person at the heart of it is Stuart Wheeler, a past major donator to Tory coffers and latterly a contributor to UKIP. Their idea is to stand against those MPs who were caught out in the expenses scandal.
The strange thing is they'd decided to field two candidates - one in Bexhill and Battle and one in Perth and North Perthshire.
My MP is Pete Wishart, SNP, and he never fiddled his expenses. Presently he represents Perth and North Pethshire. He didn't flip houses, gain profit from selling property or claim for anything untoward and is an honourable person.
I think Trust should think again about standing in Perth and North Perthshire. It's a waste of good money which could be far better spent in some current labour constituencies. Then again, perhaps Trust's candidate doesn't want to stand against labour for reasons of their own.
They should have received my email by now - well they did ask for feedback! Do we need another unionist party in Scotland? I think not.
The millionaire MP for Bexhill and Battle is another entity altogether. Mr Greg Barker seems to have made a very handsome profit from the taxpayer.
