A couple of weeks ago, David Farrar was all for investigating MPs’ expenses here. He was covering the UK scandal in depth. He tired to make a mountain out of a molehill when the Greens released their expenses.
Now his tune has suddenly changed. Now he’s going to great lengths to explain the system isn’t really ‘perks’ just an alternative to more base pay, with the implication that MPs should be able to use expenses for whatever they want.
I wonder why he suddenly changed his tune.
