How IPSA Tip Off MPs Facing Expenses Exposés

They tried to cover up the rent-swapping scandal, their boss even spends his time trying to convince the public that piggy MPs deserve our trust. Now Guido has learned that IPSA, the parliamentary standards authority set up to hold fiddling expenses cheats to account, tips off MPs facing expenses exposés. Two weeks before they release Freedom of Information responses containing details of MPs’ expenses, conveniently IPSA tip-off the Member in question to warn them of what is to come.
