Do you remember back in March when Nick Clegg righteously boomed that the delaying of publication of MPs’ expenses is a “hammer blow” to public confidence in the Commons?
Do you remember Guido called his office
and asked when he
would be publishing his
expenses. They said in two weeks. The two weeks passed and no publication was made. Things got very testy
, they denied telling me what they had told me. So Guido pressed them. They would be publishing them “in a few weeks”
said Hannah his spin-mistress. So that meant “that month [April] not next month?”,
pressed Guido There was some “humphing” from Hannah.
The month has passed.
