The propaganda allowance

I recently wrote to the South Wales Guardian welcoming the decision of the government to accept the recommendation to abolish the "Communications Allowance". Peter Black passes on a Times report that this joy was premature.

My letter dealt with Adam Price's misuse of the allowance to influence the last Welsh Assembly election, but local Labour MPs have been just as blatant in using it for self-publicity in advance of the 2010 general election.
