The torygraph did a story on the subsidised food and drink for our elected members of parliament
The taxpayers’ subsidy for the bars and restaurants in the Houses of Commons has risen to £5.8m a year, despite promises by parliamentary official to cut public funding for politicians’ meals and drinks.
They did not mention the price of a pint, but after a quick search of the parliment website (hat-tip @arfurD)
The Strangers bar (where MP can bring guests) sells Guest Ales/ Cellarman’s reserve £2.40 a pint.
You can view the full list here.
Or the other prices for the various outlets that we subsidise.
Maybe I should have gone into politics instead of sheds.
I wonder how many pints get quaffed in a year by our MPs at their bars?
