...Alan Duncan saying on video that MPs are treated "like sh*t", and that they're forced to live on "rations". He's just apologised, saying that the remarks were meant in jest. And I'm inclined to believe him: he was, after all, in conversation with the political pranksters over at Don't Panic (although he didn't know he was being filmed). But, either way, it's easy work for his opponents to take these things out of context. And many will argue that the expenses fiasco isn't a laughing matter in the first place.
