Movement at the station on transparency and accountability for parliamentarians

As to MPs allowances and expenses, today's headlines say it all. Here is a sample:

The Australian: "Call for more transparency in electorate payments"
ABC Online: " Rudd open to MP allowance reform" and "MPs employing family "bad form": Abbott"
SMH:"We have to make allowances, but guidelines could be clearer" and "Perks and lurks or tools of the trade" and "Full list of federal MPs entitlements"

Almost an anniversary- the first post on this blog about the need for reform in this area was on 24 May 2006.

Update: Special round of applause to the Daily Telegraph for digging out these gems concerning use of our money by NSW parliamentarians.
