EXPOSED: How half of all Labour MP's travel 1st class.

Hot on the heels of tbg's revelation yesterday that top Labour chiefs traveled first class to the party's conference comes another piece of bad news for Red Ed.

No fewer than 113 Labour MPs charged first class rail travel to their expenses in the past year and some of the tickets costed as much as £300.

Big names that have claimed include husband and wife Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper and former Chancellor Alistair Darling.

113 Labour, 48 Tory, 19 Lib Dem and three SNP have claimed for first class travel.
