Telegragh reveals the “1am club” expenses exploit

The Daily Telegraph have accused MPs of exploiting new expenses rules by prolonging a House of Commons debate until past 1am in the morning in order to claim up to £130 each for staying in hotels.

The newspaper today (11/07/2010) reveals that there are suggestions that some MPs have tried to rewrite their internet "history" by deleting mentions of their career low-points from Wikipedia, the user-edited online encyclopedia. The Sunday Telegraph’s revelation that details of parliamentary expenses claims had been deleted from the website, also apparently an "inside job".
