The British MP expense scandal keeps getting better and better for the media. An easy story to explain, lots of gotcha headlines, resignations, sackings, embarrassment all round and an outraged populace. 

When the British get their act together their reformed system will end up looking like the system that applies to our federal MPs.

But this is no use to the sales hungry folks at the Telegraph. Today they make a very lame effiort to try and beat up outrage about travel allowances for Australian Federal MPs. It’s pathetic.
