More than a dozen columnists weighed in with attacks on Miller, on Cameron and on the culture of MPs. Although I have witnessed feeding frenzies on erring MPs in the past, the unanimity of opinion across the political spectrum is unusual and arguably unprecedented. Miller will surely have to go.
The expenses committee watered down the fine. MPs have said they can’t have an outside body determining the rights and wrongs as this would mean it could control the composition of the Commons. Yet they accept the courts. Odd, isn’t it?
