Bit late to plead poverty, isn't it?

The 'You Can't Make It Up' Files are always a fertile source for stories, so I'm indebted to a sharp-eyed friend for spotting this little gem.

While removing VAT from condoms seems a reasonable idea (although I'm not convinced that the cost is stopping people from using them), was John 'Superstud' Hemming the best person to sign the motion? Actually, he might be, although I'm not sure that a multimillionaire can claim poverty when it comes to contraception.

Are there 2 Lynne Jones MP then? Last time I checked she was MP for Birmingham Selly
Oak - not Islington, Finsbury and where ever.
