Eric gets in a pickle!

Poor old Eric. Uncharacteristically, he got a bit tongue-tied on Question Time tonight when trying to explain why he claims about 55% (or was it 60%?) of the allowance he is entitled to claim for his second home even though his main house is "only" 37 miles away from Westminster.

Personally, I think he has a good case - it's just that he didn't explain it very well. Charles Clarke came to his help but as Eric said: "This is my contribution to Hang an MP Week"!

Excuse the language but Eric was a f****** idiot to get himself into this situation tonight.

I agree - he cocked it up but I was trying to be diplomatic! Eric is an asset and I wouldn't like to him tarnished by his unusually inarticulate explanation.
