Scarborough & Whitby’s most well known expenses fiddler, Robert Goodwill MP, came out for David Cameron’s EU Referendum Remain campaign in April on Yorkshire Coast Radio.
Personally I’ve come down on the side of remain but I know many of my supporters and members are on the leave side.
Goodwill, who rents a flat in London at the taxpayer’s expense whilst renting out his own Pimlico flat, now seems to be having a spot of bother keeping his website up to date.
A staunch Eurosceptic, Robert’s commitment to restore vital powers back to this country has been reinforced by his spell in Brussels.
It appears Goodwill doesn’t understand what the word ‘Staunch‘ actually means. Here’s a reminder, Robert:
- very loyal and committed in attitude.
Synonyms: stalwart, loyal, faithful, trusty, committed, devoted, dedicated, dependable, reliable, steady, constant, hard-working, vigorous, stable, firm, steadfast, redoubtable, resolute, unswerving, unwavering, unhesitating, unfaltering
Most folks in Scarborough & Whitby and across Yorkshire & The Humber know that Goodwill is a duplicitous individual after boasting about fiddling his expenses whilst a Euro MEP:
“I fly from Leeds/Bradford to Brussels and we get a set fee of around £500, but if I buy a cheaper ticket, economy class for about £160 and £250, I can pocket the difference.”
“And, as a capitalist, also as a British Conservative, I see it as a challenge to buy cheap tickets and make some profit on the system because that is the system.”
Robert is certainly very dependable. He can always be relied upon to do whatever is best for him and his pocket.
Last year Goodwill was branded a muppet by the Folkestone Herald after making stupid remarks about ‘Operation Stack‘, a procedure used to alleviate problems when there is cross channel traffic disruption.
Hands up who thinks Robert is brown nosing to keep his ministerial job at the Department for Transport and he doesn’t have the courage to stand up for what he believes in!
