The MPs’ Expenses Farce continues

An incompetent government seemingly led by events rather than leading, an emboldened opposition, the trickle of public backing being lost being turned into a flood. They say that history repeats itself but thirteen years seems like an awfully short time.

One wonders why, when an independent enquiry is due to report before the year end on the comprehensive issue of allowances, the government would seek to pick a fight now. One can only think that Gordon Brown has lost touch with all reality! The damage to his reputation and that hint of sleaze is done but deferring to an independent body would surely lead to this story slipping away. His insistence on meddling has kept this story in the news far longer than would otherwise have happened.

Gordon Brown’s government is a dead man walking. June 2010 cannot come too soon.
