A few of the Sunday papers ran big stories on expenses today. The Sunday Indo on TD’s expenses and the Tribune on the use of the government jet. The government are saying that the new expenses system will sort all of this out. They are missing the point completely. The only thing that will sort this out will be vouched expenses. If you need to claim, produce a receipt. Simple. Every business in the world does this or a version of it. Why is Leinster House different?
