I’m not sure though is it better that he stays in place now though. Judging by the show on Radio 1 yesterday his credability is pretty much shot.
Also the fact he is now longer a public servant gives little scope for action. It would be nice to see him pay back misuse of public funds though.
That’s a 20% tip. My experience of the USA is that a 20% tip is often automatically added for Irish people because they baulk at paying the tip which is a normal part of the price for americans. I don’t know if this applies to chauffers but I would not be surprised if the tip was not discretionary as the story suggests it was.
