Change of Heart.

"An MSP who quit as a councillor to take up his Holyrood seat accepted a bumper payoff - despite telling voters he would not take it. Nationalist Keith Brown said during last year's election campaign that he would refuse the golden goodbye he was entitled to for quitting Clackmannanshire Council."

He said he wouldn't claim the cash and then he did. And now he plans to distribute the cash to organisations within constituency which raises questions about trying to win votes by handing out the cash, paid for by the taxpayer. Highly questionable.
