I’ve tried to resist, I really have. But I can’t help but post on Jacqui Smith submitting a claim for her husband’s porn. But it’s just too good a story to let pass by. And it isn’t just a case of taking the high moral ground, although I did oppose the government’s attempt to conceal MPs’ expenses. Nor is it a case of believing that MPs’ should wear hair-shirts.
The whole episode of MPs’ expenses has been an interesting one, many will concentrate on the government’s reaction, which has been a typical Brownite dither, bottle it, try and blame the Tories.
