Free flights of fancy?

The Times is reporting that Boston MP Mark Simmonds has declared free flights worth £3,600 to Cuba, Turks and Caicos, St Kitts and Nevis and Grand Cayman.

The flights were apparently necessary as part of Mr Simmonds' role as Conservative foreign affairs spokesman.

The Times report that the flights were registered but required details were only listed following the Times inquiry.

Full story on The Times website. Having difficulty listing links properly, so here it is in full:,,17129-2182122,00.html

Hope you like the photo. It was taken when Mark Simmonds met Big Ears on one of his less glamourous trips to Butlins in Skegness.

Mr Simmonds is the one on the right.
