5 minutes with expenses fiddler Paul Flynn

From the local bottom wiping rag:

The honest answers I have put in red.

If you had to be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be and why?
Rowan Williams, for a sensible chat on the joys of Newport and the wider world. No one wants to talk to me and I never ever let them get a word in.
What is your biggest fear?
That the election of 2015 might be cancelled. Dying, it could happen any day now.
Do you have any superstitions?
No.I believe in mythical global warming.
If you could have only one song on your iPod, what would it be and why?
Myfanwy. Never tire of hearing it.Whats an iPod?
What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought, not including your property?
My present secondhand Skoda car. Ha ha you fools havent worked out that you paid for my property.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
From Leo Abse, left: when making a speech in the open air, never speak longer that three minutes.Don't believe a word Flynn says.
What’s your indulgence?
Lunching in the sunshine... at the taxpayers expense, enjoying free tv, heating and utility bills, travelling all over the world and you fools pick the tab up.
What item could you not live without?
Lap-top computer which I probably charged to you plebs, I'm not sure my memory isn't what it was you know.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
Change my date of birth to 1964and get my IQ into double figures.
Where are you next going on holiday?
No plans. Work is more enjoyable.Whenever I can blag a work related free holiday to some tropical island to talk about ending world poverty.
