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.
