If they have done nothing wrong, they have nothing to hide...

As I can hardly do justice to "the disgrace and underhand way that Harriet Harman, the leader of the house, got Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to table a parliamentary order that will exempt all MPs and peers from having to release detailed expenses under the Freedom of Information Act (David Hencke).", I won't bother.

Instead, I am putting all the expert commentary that I find on the subject matter below, as I find it. I think this order is particularly disgraceful for two reasons. 

One : This is taxpayers money
Two : The constant insistence of this government to poke their noses in OUR business whilst blatantly protecting their own interests. 



IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
