In the stocks: Latest

One of the more ridiculous elements of the latest round of the MPs expenses soap opera:
"Mark Durkan's letter asked for a payback for half a £136 bill for three nights in a Paddington hotel in 2005. He'd got a double room you see, and only used half of it himself; his wife had come over from Northern Ireland to see his maiden speech."
Mark Durkan was choosing to stop in a £45 a night hotel in Paddington - WTF? How do you find a £45-a-night room anywhere in London in the first place?
