It's that time of year again where MP's start asking the Government how much of our money it is spending on parties where civil servants photocopy their arses, and the great wine cellar of the state gets raided by people wanting to get pissed. Yes, that's right, it's Christmas time!
First on the list this year for mentioning their budgets is, Sion Simon (yes two posts in a row about him). The Minister at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, has todl the Commons that his department "has budgeted £560 for three Christmas trees."
They must be very big trees, as you can get a 12ft one for £130. Wonder if they'll be buying sustainable stock and be buying from a Tree Aid scheme?
