MPs up before the beak?

Police have reported some MPs for their expenses claims. No-one should get too carried away, though - remember that the CPS thought that prosecutions in Labour's Cash for Peerages scandal were not in the public interest, and it may consider that to be the case again.

Would the CPS shelve their investigation?

This is only tinkering with what really needs to be done. Why has no one questioned Murphy over his 12/13 months claim for food his constant dip into petty cash and use of public money to pay his accountant or is it some are more equal than others.

I think all MPs' claims have been examined, Jim Murphy's included, and they should now be allowed to run their course through the system.
