Is there such a thing as a correct use of stolen money?

I have been obvserving some of the events of the last few weeks concerning the expenses of MPs and have been wondering what to post about it if anything. It is a momentous event for a newspaper to do what newspapers should have been doing all along and holding up the activities of the Westminster club to scrutiny. One might also speculate as to why the Telegraph is doing this as Sean Gabb has done. (Sorry I don't have a link).

There is a whole lot I could say about the matter but it all boils down to the question that is the title of this post. Let's just expand the debate a little.

Tom stands out like a sore thumb

Tom Conti is an actor I have liked for a couple of decades but I had no idea he was capable of such a statement as follows. It isn't nearly as radical as it might have been but judging it against the usual BBC intellectuals it stands out like a sore thumb.

The bill and Ben

The "bill" is Ron Paul's bill to audit the Fed. And Ben is of course Bernanke. This is an interesting conversation between them. RP's bill is gaining considerable momentum and Ben really looks scared.
