Telegraph tomorrow reveals "Most serious abuses yet"

Hold on to your hats:

Some of the most serious abuses of the House of Commons allowances system will be exposed in the latest stage of the Telegraph's investigation.

The disclosures cover nine MPs, Labour and Conservative, and are certain to add to the growing public outrage over the lax policing of Parliamentary expenses by the Commons authorities.

In one case, an MP representing a northern constituency “repaid” part of a substantial over-claim on his mortgage by submitting receipts for household items he had previously purchased.

Others appear to have stretched the rules determining the designation of their second home to the limits of credulity.
