Cunningham keeps them laughing
FORMER agriculture minister Jack Cunninghams love of a lavish lifestyle keeps the attention of columnists for a second day running.
The former agriculture minister is attracting attention because of his liking of five-star hotels and expensive flights on Concorde.
Mr Cunningham used private jets for seven journeys to Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Rotterdam and Bonn while agriculture minister from 1997-98.
The average cost of the flights was £6560, compared with a business class return of £438.
