Labour left with egg on their face after accusing Nathan Gill MEP of wasting taxpayers' money

The Welsh Labour Party have been left with egg on their face after trying and failing to accuse UKIP MEP Nathan Gill of wasting taxpayers' money for driving to Strasbourg and Brussels.

A Labour Party source told Wales Online that Nathan Gill is costing the taxpayer more money by driving and that UKIP are like highwaymen being "caught out going to great lengths to squeeze as much money out of the expenses system as possible".

But Nathan says that he has to drive because of where he lives as if he goes by train he would have to leave Strasbourg an hour before voting starts which would be a complete waste of taxpayers' money and when he drives he takes his assistant with him which means he only incurs one lot of costs instead of two.
