MPs' expenses: Alistair Darling pays back expenses

Caught with his hands in the till by a camera he didn't know about, crook Alistair Darling has said that he will pay back some of the money he stole.

Which is nice.

Why he hasn't resigned yet as Chancellor though, is beyond me.

I tell you what Alistair, this year I will pay absolutely no taxes and fudge all of my books, and if the tax authorities later catch up with me, and if they can prove it, I'll pay back a bit of what they say they owe me. Obviously, they'll be no other come back, because if all the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer has to do is grudgingly hand back money owed, when caught, with no other consequence, then surely that's good enough for the rest of us.
