Hilary Benn, Ed Miliband and Alan Johnson

I was chatting to my Dad about the MP's expenses scandal back in Wales this weekend. He said that, for all the rigorous disdain that should be reserved for the chiselers, it would be nice to here about who - if any - the stand up guys in the cabinet were.

"Hilary Benn, Ed Miliband and Alan Johnson emerge as acmes of frugality who make modest and entirely reasonable claims for performing their duties." says Andrew Rawnsley, and a Google straw poll appears to confirm it.

The public will demand a cleansing of the Aegean stables. It will be interesting to revisit this post in a year or so, and see whom has been claimed by the greasy pole, and reflect on the deserving poor.
