But it turns out that Kinnock might be more fond of coffee that he’s letting on.
He wrote in The Guardian’s “How I eat” column last June that the first thing he does in the morning is “grab a flat white from Costa in Westminster tube station. They know me now, so when I walk in I don’t even have to order.”
Yes, Costa, otherwise known as a “coffee bar”. In Westminster, in the centre of London.
But it doesn’t stop there.
In 2016 the Mirror reported that Kinnock charged taxpayers for a milk frother for his office. He was reimbursed £34.99 for the gadget in September, according to data from the expenses watchdog IPSA.
Kinnock, who is the son of former Labour leader Neil Kinnock, was also reportedly able to claim nearly £100 for two coffee machines.
