Barnet Tories slated by Local Government Minister Grant Shapps

News is leaking out about Barnet Tories last night voting the leader and Cabinet big rises in expenses - and the government's own Local Government Minister Grant Shapps is not impressed, telling BBC London news:
"I find it quite disturbing that they should be taking pay rises - I urge them to think again. Which planet are they living on? For goodness sake show some leadership."

Shapps also said he thought that Lynne Hillan was "insane" to be doing this.
