Expenses scandal

Parliament’s moral authority has slumped to its ‘lowest ebb in living memory’, according to former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey. He told The News of the World that leaked reports about MPs’ expenses had shaken trust in politics. He said the revelations had exposed the ‘clawing greed’ at the heart of Westminster’s ‘culture of abuse’.

Editor’s note: There will be more comment on this rapidly developing news in the July ET.
