I can almost hear your yawns as you read the title of this post. The subject has been in the media for too long and the list of items purchased with public money is slightly longer than my Amazon wish list.
There have been calls for general elections, resignations, paybacks, and changes made to the way MPs can claim expenses. ‘At it’ seems to be an overview of everyone in all parties with little hope of anyone being re-elected at the next general election.
On a local level our own MP Danny Alexander has been brave enough to publish his expenses details on-line for everyone to see. As he says he is not cheap, commuting to and living in London, but like him or not he seems to be up front and honest which is more than can be said for a great many of his parliamentary colleagues.
