Legge up

Over at Samizdata there is an excellent post:

about the Legge report. I so hope the MPs refuse to pay and try to take the whole thing to court - they'll look like a bunch of tools and never ever see public office again.

Did they not read this part of the form

"I claim reimbursement of these costs which I incurred wholly, exclusivly and necessarily in the performance of my Parliamentary duties.

There are major doses of they just don't get it to be found everywhere. Even my favourite socialist Frank Field is whining about his cleaning & gardening bills.

So I popped over to Frank's to give him some advice, from a non-party voter.

Update: Frank hasn't published any comments; I wonder why?

    Legge was a bit random about this, but it's the "court of public opinion". Either they pay it back (good) or they refuse and all breaks loose (even better).
