MEPs’ Expenses: a back-handed compliment

On his blog, the Telegraph’s man in Brux, Bruno Waterfield, writes: “The East Midlands’ gloriously maverick Roger Helmer (is) among those who have publicly declared who works for them and which named companies administer the money”.  (He is also extremely positive about Chris Heaton-Harris).
 
Only in the topsy-turvy world of Brussels could a parliamentarian be characterised as “gloriously maverick” for representing the widely-held views of his constituents. 
 
But never mind.  In the maelstrom of accusation and innuendo surrounding the expenses issue, Bruno’s endorsement is welcome.  Given the Byzantine complexity of the Brussels system, it would be a brave man who claimed he had never put a foot wrong.  But I have done my best to stay honest, and broadly speaking I believe I have succeeded.
