Tory Bear attacks Mann not ball

Nice spot by Tory Bear in which he nails the hypocricy of one John Mann, Labour MP for Bassetlaw.
Mann had gone on record to attack Nick Winterton's comments about rail travel,
"MPs need to get out of this mindset that, somehow, we are above the general public, that we are special. Travelling second class keeps you in touch with the general public. It seems to me actually it helps MPs doing their job better."

but he speaks with forked tongue thinks the Bear,
However John Mann's constituency is Bassetlaw. The London connection is Gainsborough. A standard class return ticket from London, booked a day in advance, costs £127. So why do Mann's expenses show repeated claims for train fares between £230 and £260?

Good shooting young man(n).
