On Radio Five Live at about 5.15 this evening they were interviewing a reporter from Andrew MacKay's constituency regarding his somewhat dodgy second home expenses. The reporter told Five Live that they spoke to Mr MacKay yesterday before the Telegraph printed its allegations to him and before any stories about him were known, and Mr MacKay told them words to the effect of
"I have checked all my expenses claims fore the last four years and am sure I have done nothing wrong".
But perhaps worse is the fact that he claims to have checked his expenses and he saw nothing wrong in what he did. Doesn' this say something about his judgement ?
