Two Sorry's and Lots of Wrongs

The Telegraph turned their focus to the Tories today. A lot of the Tories claims are similar to Labour; second home flipping, luxury goods brought, trivial claims, rich MPs claiming for things that they could pay for. The Independent have put together the main claims. I lack the motivation to type and comment on them all.

After their publication however, David Cameron was the first leader to do something, other than close the curtains and pretend no one was home, he said that:
We have to acknowledge just how bad this is. The public are really angry and we have to start by saying, look, this system that we had, that we used, that we operated, that we took part in - it was wrong and we're sorry about it.
At least he has some understanding of public dismay, makes him come off better than Brown, who three days after the Telegraph reports on expenses and after Cameron's sorry, says to an audience of Nurses:
Just as you have the highest standards in your profession, we must show that we have the highest standards for our profession.

I want to apologise on behalf of politicians on behalf of all parties for what has happened in the events of the last few days.
He is so sorry he waited three days to comment? The man has no idea how to take responsibility, if he stood to be praised though, I wonder if it would've taken three days to speak up.

Paul Waugh has a post that sums up parliament priorities well.
