Expensegate - A Thought

Sir Thomas Legg, reported in today's Telegraph:

"the rules were so vague, the Fees Office was so weakly placed to enforce them, and MPs were themselves the self-certifying and responsible guardians of those funds as well as their recipients" and talking about the Fees Office "They were servants of the House and, while of course supposed to observe and apply its rules, they were also in practice expected to do so in the ways most beneficial to the MPs whom they were there to serve."

Kinda negates all that crap about expenses 'being within the rules and ok'd by the Fees Office!
