Taxpayer-funded vanity

I am not sure if Andrew R.T, Davies is going to be an accident-prone leader of the Welsh Conservative Assembly Group or not but this cannot be a good start.

This morning's Western Mail reports that he has come under fire after it emerged he claimed expenses for a promotional video about his work as an AM. They say he has received reimbursement of £195 from the Assembly in February for the video, which is still available on his website.

At the time it was seen as part of a potential leadership bid by Mr Davies, who resigned as Shadow Health Secretary last November after an apparent fall-out with the then group leader Nick Bourne which was never explained.

Clearly, that was not the case otherwise he would not have claimed for it. Still it looks like a bit of an own goal. At least Mr. Davies has not suffered a black eye after falling in a shower yet.
