Scotland's classy Labour MSPs

From The Scotsman:

"Bill Butler, the Labour MSP for Glasgow Anniesland and a former candidate for deputy leader, listed the £1 claim as a "carer fund donation".

"The list of rejected claims included attempts to claw back money for Christmas cards, plants and satellite navigation kits. Another senior Labour MSP, Malcolm Chisholm, tried and failed to get £3 back for a charge on a pay-as-you-go smart card"

I think this is the best one though:

"Some have got away with strange claims. In 2007 Lib Dem MSP Jamie Stone was able to get 42p back for a pint of milk".

On the subject of elected Scots, there may well be a tale involving some rather poor behaviour by an MP from Scotland's east blogged later.
