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"!
