I have spent the whole day sorting out travelling expenses claims for Nick and tomorrow I shall endeavour to do the same with Andrew.
There´s very generous travel allowance budget provided by the EU but to claim for it requires some complicated paper work made even more difficult because claims are in kilometres and mileometers on our cars (which is taken as the proof of travel) are exactly that - in miles.
As with everything in the European Parliament it all has to be done exactly right otherwise any claim is returned unpaid, so I have my fingers crossed that I have done the paperwork correctly.
Tina and Eddy Butler have been out doing the groundwork for a trip of BNP members to the European Parliament in November. They have been checking out restaurants, hotels and various sightseeing options so that the two-day package for our members is really interesting.
Andrew is in a committee meeting at the moment but was in fine form this morning making a fool of a hostile interviewer from BBC Radio Humberside. Hopefully a recording of this is on their website.
Nick is just back from his committee meeting and is discussing with our civil servant what is in store for the rest of the week.
