MPs claiming expenses without reciepts ..

We in the UK have been seeing a flood of stories about expense claims from MPs

One thing strikes me as odd: Until last year, MPs could claim £250 of expenses with no receipts and even now its £25.

So, does that apply to everyone?

Keeping track of receipts (especially multi-currency ones) is a big hassle and a vast majority of them are indeed under £25

Very odd ..

Not withstanding outright questionable expenses

They included Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, who claimed thousands of pounds for refurbishing her family home in her constituency, claiming her “main” home was a spare bedroom in her sister’s house in London.

Though not a Telegraph reader, for once this is a good development and as long as the coverage is cross party – I think it is a good job from the Telegraph since its in the public interest
