Pig, Snout, Trough.
MPs tonight voted to reject reform of their controversial expenses system. Their vote in the House of Commons means they will retain their additional costs allowance to fund second homes in London. They will also have their spending audited only by internal auditors. Voting was close with 172 voting to retain the old system and 144 voting for change, leaving a majority of 28 maintaining the status quo.
