Top Tory loses expenses appeal

As the Mail reports:

A former High Court judge today dismissed an appeal by shadow defence secretary Liam Fox against a finding that he was overpaid more than £22,000 in parliamentary expenses for mortgage interest on his second home.

Dr Fox was one of five MPs whose appeals were rejected by Sir Paul Kennedy – also including Communities Minister Shahid Malik, who was overpaid by £1,340 in expenses for council tax and a TV at his second home.

Tory candidate launches iPhone App

This time it’s The Sun getting all excited over the wonders of modern technology:

Every update I make to my website becomes part of the content for the iPhone app.

People can see my calendar, they can see what I have said on a variety of issues and most importantly they can tell me straight away what they think of it.

Lots of people have iPhones, you see, so they’ll all want to see the candidate’s diary and follow his pronouncements on the issues of the day.
