I've just listened to Sir Nicholas Winterton on 5 Live's Steve Nolan show. The man is a complete and utter arse and I hope that David Cameron apologises for this dinosaur's comments and totally disowns the pompous fool. His comments on travelling first class on the train were shocking, as was his whole attitude to the way he claimed his expenses.
The problem here is that Winterton thinks that being an MP somehow makes you superior to the general public - a view shared with MPs of all parties. Luckily Winterton is stepping down at the election along with a load of other scroungers who are up their own backsides.
I hope that this man's idiocy does not put people off voting Tory.
