Small Business letter to the Telegraph; an attempt to defraud the electorate?

Cameron, Clegg and Miliband to make emergency visit to Scotland
It deeply irritates me that Miliband feels the need to tell people that he's not *travelling* with Cameron. All three are going up to Scotland, agreeing to miss PMQs, and all are working to the same aim there.

But gods forbid anyone worry they might be liftsharing.
