Taxpayers get £4,000 limo bill for ex-Cabinet minister John Reid's trips to football matches as '£50,000-a-year' Celtic chairman

Former Labour Cabinet minister John Reid has charged taxpayers thousands of pounds for luxury limousines to take him to a string of football matches.
The former Home Secretary, now chairman of Celtic Football Club, travelled in style to 14 matches last season at public expense.
The Mail’s revelations will trigger controversy over how taxpayers’ money is used to cover the travel expenses of former ministers and last night there were calls for the money to be repaid. Fat chance, these fuckers have no shame.

Matchday perks: Lord Reid has used the Government car service to ferry him to and from Celtic games despite stepping down as a Labour minister in 2007

We should be grateful, I suppose, that the putrid wee  bastard didnae go awa doon tae London and try to molest the Deputy Speaker, Ms Primarolo, like he used to. Or have a drunken brawl in the gutter.  Any dope found in the limos, of course, will have been put there by previous occupants, and not Dr John.

We should execute Jeremy Clarkson and his gang of mutants; in fact, execute all public schoolboys. And Oxbridge graduates.

...a touch fruity, I'd suggest.

They take it all so seriously, don't they, at CIF? As though there was some difference between the various affiliations of shit-eating scoundrels in MediaMinster; they know neither politics nor Zen, those people, just bickering. As though cycling made any difference to anything.

(For others, the Monbiot thread to which mt yaic refers, was about To War On Motorists or Not To War On Motorists. When of course it should have been on How Many Of The Motherfuckers Can We Get Up Against The Wall, Motherfuckers?)

Why can't Celtic pay? I'm being very stupid and southern today.

Everybody else has to pay their own transport if they want to go to the footie. The grasping bastard should be hanging from the same dungeon wall as Robinson.

I suppose it's for security, is it, in case he is at risk of being assassinated? I have heard those fans can get quite bad-tempered.

So many young Jocks killed and crippled in Reid's bloodless Afghanistan war, yet Celtic fans cheer the wee bastard to the rooftops; footba' the beautiful game.

Actually, the cat's don't make videos, but people make
funny videos with cat's in them. Mark Shapiro has been talking about, and
promoting, consumer, broadcast and Internet Video more than 20 years.
A quite easy Android application which is worth looking over
is Night Stand.

Look into my webpage; funny video clips []
