Some people think MPs are ferried around in limousines at taxpayers' expense.
Paul Flynn, MP for Newport West, offers contrary evidence. He returned to the Commons last night in a rickshaw.
This is how he tells the story on his blog: "Stranded in the rain last night, without a taxi in sight and then blessed relief trundled along in the shape of Polish muscle power.
"I hailed it nd I glided majestically across Westminster Bridge in a rickshaw expertly pedalled by a Polish basetball player. It was a first for the police on carriage gates. They applauded as I trundled through. Getting across the security glass-well was tricky.
"The rickshaw has a small wheelbase. Having successfully manoeuvred that it was a dawdle to take me a foot away from my car parked at palace court. This was a far better pollution-free service than the taxi. The £5 cost was the same with the added satisfaction on contribution to the Polish economy."
Let's hope he kept the receipt.
