MP Expenses Set To Be Protected By The Back Door

In a move which has not been widely reported in the Labour Party supporting press it seems that MPs have yet again made plans to hide substantial details of their expenses claims. While a move to become more open with regard to expense claims is afoot with literally millions of receipts being scanned as we speak, not all details will be made available.

Yet again the MPs have used the security cover to argue for less disclosure and even managed to change the Freedom of Information act to take out any requests for elements of their expenses which could identify any properties they may be claiming upon. These are the same people who have suggested that they should be paid a daily attendance fee for going to 'work' each day on top of their already substantial wage packets.

As the normal man and woman on the street continue to struggle and the government block wage demands any where near the rate of inflation, they continue to vote themselves inflation busting increases. While there is no doubt that the latest move to a more transparent expenses system is welcomed by all, why have they now decided to move the goal posts? What have they actually got to hide?
