2002 Advanced Expense Warning

Hat tip to Clive Davies , this is from the Guardian letter section:
Reading Chris Mullin's excellent diaries, A View from the Foothills, I came across this entry from 1 May 2002: "Apparently, under the Freedom of Information Act, by January 2005, MPs' expenses will be subject to public scrutiny, retrospectively. Goodness knows what mayhem that will cause. 'We are in a jam,' said Robin Cook. 'Few members have yet tumbled to the juggernaut heading their way.'"

So they had enough warning to jump clear. Or even do the right thing.
