Exclusive: Commission Order LibDem Expenses Review

The Electoral Commission have found some irregulatrities between what Chris Huhne declared in his election expenses as “national spending” and what the national Liberal Democrats actually declared. The bad news is for Cowley Street as there is clearly some serious concern over at the Electoral Commission that this practice goes beyond Huhne’s tight marginal constituency:

“The Commission have written to the Liberal Democrat national party asking them to review their procedures and report back to the Commission measures they will implement to avoid a repeat of this in future.”

Which begs the question, how many more LibDem associations do the Electoral Commission suspect are up to these tricks?
