Mark Reckons has done an excellent bit of work looking at the likelihood of UK MPs milking their expenses correlating that with how safe their seats are. Meanwhile New Europe has raised the question of if and when the scrutiny of expenses is going to come to the European Parliament. Put those two thoughts together, and throw in the fact that the UK’s election system for MEPs increases the likelihood of candidates just making the party happy… Giles Chichester and Den Dover have already been hit. 390 of 646MPs had to pay back after Legg’s enquiry in Westminster, so are Chichester and Dover the only ones from the UK’s major parties in the EP? I suspect not.
