Brown: Expenses are a matter for Parliament

The PM's spokesman was quick to side-step the mine that is Tony McNulty's expense claim at a briefing just now.

He said the PM had confidence in McNulty's ability as a minister.

But he added that expenses were not an issue that relates to Tony McNulty's Government roles.

They were a matter for Parliament, he said, and needed to be dealt with by the House.

When pressed on whether he had "an opinion" the same response came.

I didn't expect anything less, but it's enough to make your blood boil.

One would have thought, Mr Dog, that whether McNutter was a man of integrity and honesty was a matter that related directly to his Ministerial role, and indeed to his position as an MP. This, one would have thought, would be a matter of extreme concern to our Holder of the Moral Compass.

Has the Compass been mislaid, or is it simply that the one-eyed moron is holding it upside down?

Another piece of delusion. Mad, quite mad. Just imagine if this were a Tory or LibDem.

It seems to me that McNutter's expenses, or indeed any MP's expenses are a matter for the taxpayer.

Of course, I could be wrong!

I thought he was the leader of the Labour Party, not just the PM in Govt.
