It's a sad sign of the times when a scandal involving an MP and an au pair is not sexual but financial.
Tory MP Jonathan Djanogly has been accused of paying his au pair from his allowances. The millionaire Tory claims he was actually paying a cleaner. His family only spend on average 3 days a week in that particular home so £400 a month sounds a bloody good deal for that particular cleaner/au pair.
I must admit the expenses thing is getting dreary now. A good old fashioned sex scandal would be very interesting at the moment. Mind you in these politically correct times it would probably involve Lady Mandy and some fresh faced young researcher. Yuk!
