Miller Protests Innocence

When asked if their boss was planning on quitting, a spokesman for Maria Miller tells Guido:

“We have always been clear that Maria’s claims are entirely above board. The inquiry is still ongoing.” 

The Commons’ Standards Committee will be the judge of that one actually.

    Sadly, it seems that this whole expenses thing refuses to go away. More sadly, it is the people making the expenses that wont either a) claim with some sense of what might be right or b) go away.

          Well…2018 at the outside. No longer than that..

          Maybe 2019.

          But by 2020 it will all be done. All agreed . ready to go. On the ball. Absolutely prepared to hold that referendum in 2022.

          Say…2025 at the very latest, Ok?
