Why is Charles Clarke so large ? The mystery is solved
I've often wondered why Charles Clarke, the rotund MP for Norwich South, is so very large. Very few MPs seem to be on the obese side of overwight (aside from the obvious Eric Pickles), due to the fact that being an MP is a job that requires you to be constantly on the go.
Well according to his expenses, he spends the maximum £400 per month allowance (which is paid without receipts) on food alone.
Well, now I know.
He was, according to various local media, "unavailable for comment". To be honest, it would have been rude for him to talk with his mouth full anyway !
