MP’s expenses scandal rolls on
Posted by Matt Walker on October 17, 2009
We have just learned that 27 MPs are to be investigated by HM Revenue and Customs to find out whether they have paid enough tax. Some MPs have been criticised for not paying capital gains tax on second homes sold after being bought with public money.
It seems that MPs simply cannot put the expenses farrago to bed. Just in case you slept through the whole of the initial scandal, the BBC have kindly dedicated a lot of time and space to keep us informed. Have a look at their site.
