Blackberies are buzzing all over London: The Telegraph seems to have got its mitts on the story everyone wants. The disc with MPs expenses is out - and finally we see the Cabinet's expenses. My favourite is that Gordon Brown has paid his brother Andrew £6,570 for "cleaning services". Second favourite that Jack Straw claimed twice the amount of council tax that he paid (although, unlike Brown, he actually apologised). Then Hazel Blears spends £5,000 on furniture on her third home in four months. Brown claimed the same plumbing twice. Oh dear. More follows.
