The word doing the round amongst us hacks is that the Telegraph series on expenses will cover the shadow Cabinet on Monday. This, though, is subject to change. Apparently, the Telegraph's own journalists aren’t even sure what is running when. 

There is, apparently, some really bad stuff in there about certain members of the shadow Cabinet. It is also expected that a couple of Tory backbenchers will be named and shamed tomorrow for being among the very worst abusers of the system. I think there is a strong case for Cameron being prepared to take the Whip away from those who have behaved particularly egregiously.

But the really big question is what will the Telegraph do on Sunday. Everyone expects their Sunday coverage to be as juicy as today’s. My hunch is that they’ll do the details of some Ministers who are absent from today’s list. If the stories on Sunday are substantially worse than today’s, we could well be talking career ending stuff.
