Speaker Martin, universally acclaimed as the worst Speaker in the history of Parliament is no slouch when it comes to getting the taxpayer to cough up for him and his chippy missus to have an exotic holiday.
"Mrs Martin has no formal official role as the wife of the Speaker, yet the couple averaged an overseas trip once every four months to some of the most sought-after destinations in the world.
They include a 15-day visit to Hawaii and New Zealand in July/August 2004 and a two-day trip to the Bahamas in January 2007."However, all of his junkets were approved by a Commons Committee chaired by Speaker Martin.
So that's obviously squeaky clean. Oink! Oink! Ouik!
