Congratulations to the Daily Telegraph for a job well done

MPs including Gordon Brown and David Cameron have proclaimed their unhappiness at the “blackout” censorship of parliamentary expenses documents published this week.

This website wholeheartedly supports the Daily Telegraph and how it has handled the MPs' expenses issue. It has performed a valuable public service.
