David Cameron outguns Gordon Brown over MPs expenses

In a startling revelation David Cameron has today shaken the whole UK political scene with confirmation that members of the Shadow Cabinet have agreed to repay a variety of expenses which have received significant criticism over the last few days. Literally thousands of pounds will be repaid relating to furniture expenses, gardening costs and home improvements amongst other things in a move which took Gordon Brown by surprise.

After David Cameron revealed he has taken legal advice about potentially expelling those MPs who refuse to pay back their objectionable expenses the Labour Party was forced to follow suit in a hastily arranged press conference. While no MP has come out of the expenses debacle with any particular credit the handling of the situation by David Cameron has caught the public eye. After years of abuse of the system it appears that David Cameron is actually willing to take on members of his party who have been seen to "take advantage of the system".

With revelation after revelation hitting the press there have also been a number of calls to dissolve parliament and call a general election although this is highly unlikely given the current state of opinion polls.
