(A Wexford Case)
The seventh in the Chief Inspector Wexford series, reissued in B format.
It was the biggest political scandal for a generation.
The Speaker of the House and 5 members of the Cabinet resigned.
The Legg enquiry ordered MPs to pay back over £1 million of wrongly claimed expenses. 381 MPs will be forced to pay back an average £3,000.
3 MPs and 1 Lord face criminal charges.
No Expenses Spared is the fascinating account of the journalistic scoop that changed the face of British politics. It tells the story of one whistleblower and a small team of dedicated journalists who worked in secret to pore through more than a million expenses documents, braved the threat of legal action and political pressure to reveal the truth.
