Welcome to reality

MPs will have to submit receipts for expenses claims over £25 from 1 April, the Commons Members Estimate Committee has announced.

So they can no longer just claim £400 per month for 'food' tax-free, as if their dietary requirements were something special.

Hopefully this is not an attempt to prevent a full disclosure of all the payments every MP has received to date, by pretending that everything is now in order, so why re-open the past.

But I fear that Machiavellian manoeuvring to cover their tracks is exactly what this pit of rattlesnakes intend.
