The Westminster village and priorities

The transparency issue about MP’s expenses is important (not to mention the mess Brown got into today), but I can’t help feeling that the Westminster village has got it’s priorities wrong on this.

Yes make a fuss, yes all receipts should be presented.  However on a day the Pound drops again, unemployment soars and public borrowing takes off vertically, Brown has been able to smother the bad news yet again.

There is a time and place for all issues but today was not the day to highlight the issue on MP’s expenses.
