Specsavers has launched a press campaign on the back of the British MP expenses claims debacle.
The ads mock a claim by Michael Clapham, a Labour backbencher, who submitted a receipt for £210 for the pair of glasses bought for his wife from an opticians in Barnsley. The fees office reduced the payout to £50 as it was too much for a pair of glasses on allowance.
The campaign says ‘Glasses from only £25. Should’ve gone to Specsavers’.
