This blog has always been quick to spot a government stooge, and I imagined I'd be rubbishing the probity of the man appointed to head the expenses inquiry in the same way as I've rubbished the fatuous processes of Hayden Phillips or the complicity of Hutton. However, the more I know about Tom Legg the less likely this becomes. He appears to be that rare bird, a public servant with real probity who understands perfectly his duty of stewardship of public funds. So far, he's done very well - the only one in power who has acted in our interests.
It doesn't surprise me that some MPs are now plotting to smear him. They're rotten, corrupt little turds who have been caught thieving from the public purse and this sort of dishonourable behaviour is par for the course. I've equally no doubt that Tom Legg is unsmearable.
