MPs expenses will be back in the public eye again as Sir Thomas Legg publishes his final report. As a result, the BBC will doubtless have recourse to its old habit of stressing Conservative expense claims above Labour ones.
I thought I'd test out this hypothesis by seeing what's on the BBC News website this morning. It's the main story there:
Only one MP is singled out for attention by the article and, yes, he's a Tory:
Among them is Conservative Bernard Jenkin, who had been asked to repay £63,250 - the highest amount known - after renting his second home from his sister-in-law. This practice was banned in 2006. He has said his repayment has been reduced to £36,250.
Here we go again!
