SNP MP David Linden spent taxpayers’ cash sending 200 birthday cards to kids turning 18

AN MP has been ­reprimanded for using taxpayers’ cash to send 200 birthday cards to children turning 18.

The Scottish National Party’s David Linden used pre-paid envelopes, embossed with a Westminster logo, for the cards.

They were mocked up to show him holding a cake.

He used London landmarks, such as the Big Ben tower and the Houses of Parliament, on the front of the cards — even though he wants a breakaway Scotland.

A Parliament inquiry said he had used them to promote himself and ordered him to pay back £147.34 in postage.

Mr Linden admitted he had breached the Parliamentary code of conduct.
