Conservative Assembly Members earn their keep

I've often wondered what certain Conservative Assembly members do for their money now that their man is in charge. The Telegraph has found out:

'Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London may have bitten off more than he could chew (or indeed afford) when he invited members of the London Assembly to come up with ideas to improve City Hall.

'Lady (Victoria) Borwick suggested "a few table tennis tables and other fun things would not go amiss in certain areas". Richard Tracey, for his part, suggested "attractive daily flower arrangements in the entry concourse – look at the ones Norton Rose opposite us have each day". Richard Barnes thought it would be a good idea to paint the place in a more "welcoming colour instead of the awful yellow". Just as well money isn't in short supply these days.'

Or time it would seem.

It looks like someone forgot to plug them in.

What nonsense Simon. Can't you see the wires on Borwick?

It reminds me of an amusing article Victor Anderson wrote when he was a member of the Assembly, describing a meeting where the Conservative members mainly talked about the quality of the biscuits.

I'd like to read that.
