McNulty issued his 'grovelling apology' and then went on BBC News saying that he had done nothing wrong.
I listened to McNulty's apology and his interview later of BBC radio 5. It struck me that he was actually apologising for being caught rather than acknowledging that he had ripped of the tax payer. How can anybody justify a claim for a second home allowance when his first home was only a few miles away.
Is this the same McNulty who as a Home Office Minister embraced zero tolerance? If so, that would have been at the same time as he was making "careless" claims for benefits he was not entitled to. The bare faced hypocritical dishonesty of today's "apology" beggars belief. Its just that they have to live by the rules that the likes of creeps such as McNulty enact.
