“A wealthy Tory MP claimed £45 for a megaphone to lead a march protesting against NHS cuts.
The Sunday Mirror can reveal Conservative Jonathan Djanogly billed the taxpayer for the item which he rented ahead of a rally to save his local hospital.
Yesterday we sent a reporter to his constituency where locals branded him a hypocrite.
One said: “The hospital was under threat because his party is attacking the NHS. He’s been acting the hero, but this shows he’s just as bad as the rest of them.
“He probably could have borrowed one for free.”
Local Labour chairman Dr Nik Johnson said: “We’ve been wondering whether we are going to be asked to pay some money towards it too, as I was also asked to speak at the march.
“It was handed round various speakers, so we don’t know if we owe something for it or not.”
