IPSA: Don't hide MPs' expenses

Remember when we paid £2,115 to clean an MP’s moat? In 2009, many MPs were found to have abused taxpayers’ money by claiming outrageous expenses. Now an idea is being floated to hide the names of MPs whose expenses are being looked into. And make details of expenses less thorough. But our MPs work for us, so what they spend our money on is our business.

IPSA the watchdog which sets the rules for MPs expenses is asking for the public's opinion. A huge people-powered petition demanding that politicians expenses are kept public could force the plans to be dropped. Can you sign it now?
