On top of the whole McBride business, this story in the Mail On Sunday's diary suggests there is yet more damage to come on the expenses front for the government:

The prospect of ministerial mayhem when full details of MPs’ expenses receipts are published in the summer may force Gordon Brown to delay the Cabinet reshuffle due after the June Euro elections.

'We are braced for a rash of ministerial resignations when they come out in July,’ said a Labour Whip.

‘There is no point having a reshuffle in June if we have to do it all over again a month later.’

Things just keep getting worse for Brown.
