The civil servant who helped leak the MPs expenses to the press said that he didn’t have any regrets about releasing the information.
John Wick had also told the BBC that after the revelations, ‘Parliament will be a better place, society will be a better place’. I’m not so sure about this.
Elsewhere, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, said: ‘The continuing systematic humiliation of politicians itself threatens to carry a heavy price in terms of our ability to salvage some confidence in our democracy’. Look, why is an unelected person defending our crooked MPs?
Piecemeal reform is not enough. Nothing short of a wholesale clearout of Parliament is needed to restore public faith in our flagging democracy.
