Hindsight is 20:20

[ #38960 ]

Hindsight is 20:20. I'm not sure if it's fair to say that back in 2001 when Freedom of Information legislation was passed, it was clear this juggernaught was coming down the track, but it is clear back in 2005 that expenses can sink you. (in that case, the Scottish Conservatives' leader. *)

This may look like a Tory initiative, but disgust at what’s been going on is spread across all parties. I also think it's significant that the 2005 intake are taking the lead here: the world has changed, Westminster hasn't, and this is clearer to some MPs than others. I draw a division across all parties: good (who are disgusted) the bad (who know it's bad, but don't want to rock the boat) and the ugly (Margaret Moran and Derek Conway). It's time we heard more from the good.

So, yes, I'm wondering, who are the honourable honourable members? Is it just Dr Richard Taylor?

* Hmm, progress of sorts for them. Scottish Conservatives' rather than Scottish Conservative's
