Parliamentary Standards Commission to reopen investigation of Margaret Moran

I don't want to gloat at others' misfortunes, what with it being my birthday and everything. But it is hard to suppress a smile at the news that the Parliamentary Standards Commission is to resume its inquiry into whether Margaret Moran has breached the MPs' Code of Conduct.

As Dunstable Today reports:

The Commissioner for Standards, John Lyon, launched an investigation last year after the MP referred herself to him following the expenses scandal.

But it suspended the inquiry at the end of last year because of the MP's ill health, which has seen her unable to work since her expenses claims were exposed.

But the MP was seen in a Channel 4 documentary on Monday night saying she was able to work immediately for a firm that wanted her to lobby on behalf of its clients.
