Former Guardian journalist Martin Linton, now MP for Battersea, hits back over the expenses scandal in the Letters Page of the Guardian today.
He writes: "Congratulations on your coverage of MPs' expenses-gate. It made me cringe and squirm to read about the scams that some MPs got up to - though I seem to remember some pretty horrific expenses fiddles that journalists got up to at various newspapers I worked on before joining the Guardian."
