Expenses probe to be televised

The BBC is reporting that the Committee on Standards in Public Life will let the cameras in when it takes evidence in June and July.

I am sure it will be make wonderful television.  It will do nothing to settle the matter, as the damage to MPs’ reputations is now firmly fixed in voters minds .  It is a meaningless side show that I am not sure is wise in the present heated atmosphere.

Televising the evidence will just make the wider public more angry with MPs than they already are.
