So the High Court has ruled we can see MPs detailed expenses on second homes. What caught my eye however was the bit of the report that said,
The Commons authorities have also been ordered to pay at least £33,500 in costs.So let me get this straight. That is taxpayers money being paid from one pot into another pot belonging to state. Isn't that a zero sum game really?
They may have been ordered to pay £33,500 in costs, but in reality its been the free use of court's time because the overall amount of money that the Government holds remains the same doesn't it?
