"Gordon Brown has said "mistakes" were made by MPs in their use of House of Commons expenses."

I love that. 'Mistakes'. It's the word Nasty Nick used when he was caught cheating on Big Brother.

It's used in the knowledge that it has several meanings. The connotation of errors of judgement and lapses of morality allows them to say they've apologised, but the connotation of accident allows them to appear as if they didn't do their corrupt deeds deliberately.

Still scumpigs, even as they're exposed.

Anyone else notice how the Tories didn't lay in to Brown and co over this? They knew their headline was coming.

£2145 to fix a pipe under millionaire banker Oliver Letwin's tennis court.

That's the same Oliver Letwin who is devising the plans for Tory spending cuts when they come to power
