Wasting taxpayers money complaining about wasting taxpayers money

Here's something for your amusement and delectation. Some many remember the other week that questions were raised about a possible conflict of interest for the Yes2AV campaign and the Electoral Reform Society in terms of how its commercial arm stood to gain significantly from a yes vote and earn lots of money from your pockets i.e. tax revenue.

Likewise, you might also remember how the No2AV campaign got its knickers in a twist saying that the Yes campaign was peddling lies about the cost of the referendum and what not to the taxpayer in comparisons to things that could be bought for the same amount money.

You might notice a convergent theme here about "taxpayers money" and what is and what is not sound spending etc. Which lead me on to this. Both supporters on both sides have wasted taxpayers money tabling early day motions about the shocking tactics of each in relation to the spending and/or possible spending of taxpayer money.

Yes2AV Motion:

No2AV Amendment to Yes2AV motion:

The 3vident conclusion that one is left to draw is when it comes to spending your money they're all quite happy to it with pointless rhetoric slapped and printed on a piece of paper for each of them to feel good about.

Please don't even get me started on the £600 spent tabling a motion to promote family mealtimes.
