The expenses scandal will not go away it seems. The Tory press did not take long to dig up the dirt on their Lib Dem friends.
The latest name is no less a Coalition Government Minister than the Chief Secretary to the Treasury. The second whip to the Chancellor and the guy who does all Mr Osborne's dirty work.
It is remarkable that this should happen to the guy while he begins, with his new Tory allies, to impose cuts that will hurt the man in the street.
The gentleman is reported to have claimed thousands of pounds in rent for a room in a house he shared with his partner. Sadly, his sexuality has also been revealed, which really has nothing at all to do with anyone except him and his partner.
This does not excuse his behaviour in any way. So, Mr Cameron, what moral authority does your Chief Secretary to the Treasury now have? Credibilty nil: taking a position when he knows he has expenses claims to justify and now it appears, thousands of pounds to pay back to the people of the UK
Sounds like he was made to jump before he was pushed.
