Merron is still cashing in.

She may have been beaten by Tory Karl McCartney in 2010 but tbg. can today exclusively reveal that former Minister and ex Lincoln MP Gillian Merron is still cashing in.

tbg. understands that Merron is currently renting out a flat bought partly out of taxpayer funds to Shadow Transport Minister Lilian Greenwood.

Matthew Sinclair of the Taxpayers Alliance has told tbg. this morning that - "People will be dismayed to discover their cash is being used to rent out properties already bought with the help of a taxpayer subsidy."
