IPSA watchdog to become Bercow's poodle?
IPSA watchdog to become Bercow’s poodle?

BBC News, Tuesday 13 November 2012
Four members of the watchdog which polices MPs’ expenses are to stand down after a row with Commons speaker John Bercow. Sources suggested the Speaker’s decision not to back their reappointment as a matter of course, as had been expected, would be seen by some as an attempt to curb their independence. IPSA took over responsibility for policing MPs’ expenses in 2010 after it emerged that a number of MPs had made inappropriate claims under the old system overseen by Parliament and a handful had committed fraud.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
