Looks like it`s a wee bit too early to condemn the SNP guys Neil and the Telegraph highlighted this week. Happy to re-visit of course and they should have the book thrown at them if they have been at it. Quotes and links with the current state of play. Investigation ongoing.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the BBC she had seen no evidence of any breach of parliamentary expenses rules. .....................................
In response, the SNP said: "The expenses were approved by the Commons authorities in line with the rules on MP's London accommodation, and none of them involved any additional cost to the public purse beyond that.
"This is the height of hypocrisy from the Tories, given the extent of flagrant abuse of expenses by their MPs which has been exposed in recent years - they simply don't have a leg to stand on when it come to this issue."
Mr MacNeil said: "My accommodation in London is claimed under normal expenses, as is the case for all MPs, and the cost of this is compliant with the rules of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).
"I don't like to comment on my personal life or related tabloid stories, but my marriage sadly ended for very different reasons to what has been suggested in lurid newspaper stories this week.
"For the record, as if I even need to say, I have never had so much as a crossed word with my colleague Stewart Hosie MP."
