Ex SNP MPs taking trips despite LOSING their seats – and YOU pay for them! : Express.

FORMER SNP MPs Alex Salmond and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh are still representing the UK Parliament in Europe – despite losing their seats in last month’s election.

The nationalist party’s former MPs have attended meetings of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe – at the expense of the British taxpayer.

Just weeks ago, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon called Theresa May’s decision to make Ian Duncan, the Tory MEP, a peer an “absolute abomination”.
