The Telegraph is doing a thorough investigation into officially released documents from the British government that leave a paper trail of MP expenses. Highlights of commendable spending include ironing Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s shirts, paying for his Sky satellite subscription (£38/month), and Former Labour Minister’s Elliot Morley’s £16,000 mortgage (which was already payed off!)
I don’t have time right now to look through it more in depth, but I’m sure that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The main Telegraph portal can be found here.
In any case, we shouldn’t worry. Nobody in our government would ever do something like this.
