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 GBP1 million of wrongly claimed expenses. 381 MPs will be forced to pay back an average GBP3,000. 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.
