Quirky Euro Files: the British Politician's Moat

Somehow I found this little news blurb really amusing.

I mean, seriously: a British pol is under pressure because he might have used public money to ... clean out the moat on his estate. The MOAT. No, really!

It's the sort of goofy, historically-tinged oddity that almost screams out, "Only in the UK."

Meanwhile, the British MPs' expense scandal progresses apace.

Well! his clairvoyance paid off (pun intented). Now he can use the moat to protect himself from the masses.
