Eligible vs entitled

In the dictionary the meaning of eligible and entitled are very similar.

But in practise, being eligible for something doesn’t necessarily mean the same as being entitled to it.

An MP and his partner might have been eligible for a taxpayer funded trip

But when the MP’s colleagues had warned Chirs Carter about his spending it suggests they thought he and his partner were taking more than they were entitled to.

    The average MP is so busy preening its ego that they would not look beyond the first letter.
