Abstract

Maria Miller’s resignation was brought about by yet another expenses scandal. However, the real scandal, argues Imke Henkel, is that politicians are not being paid adequately for their work and instead have to go through bureaucratic hoops in order to claim expenses. The entire expenses claims system should be reformed in-line with the German and French flat-rate allowance so as to avoid any future issues.
