Steve Rotheram turns down tickets to the men's 100m final
You may have seen the furore today about members of the culture, media and sport select committee accepting tickets to the men's 100m final at the Olympics.
Walton MP Steve Rotheram, who is a member of the committee, was not one of them though.
Mr Rotheram told me: ""There is always a perception of it being a jolly with these things.
"I was criticised for going to the FA Cup Semi-Final despite the teams being in my constituency."
Buty he said he would not be critical of members of the committee that accepted the tickets from BT.
"Part of the role of the committee to look at the effect of the Olympics."
