Ivor Caplin was no stranger to the limelight when he was an MP. But strangely he has gone awfully quiet recently. In particular, it seems strange that he seems to have nothing to say about the demand for nearly £18,000 in mortgage interest from Sir Thomas Legg, head of the enquiry into MPs' expenses. The demand is based on Caplin's failure to reply to letters asking him to account for the money. Now whilst Ivor's "inefficiency" with correspondence is legendary among his former constituents, this seems rather careless to say the least!
So, Ivor, are you going to explain this? Do you not think that you owe your constituents some sort of accountability? You were after all so vocal in your unquestioning support for Boss Blair's drive to war.
