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:

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.
