Who owns the Telegraph?
Hopefully it is the Sky owner.
Won't mention his name as it would burn my lips in mentioning it.
If so then online links to the said paper will be expensive as it will be a pay for view.
Bye Telegraph.

it was within the law - There is no suggestion that Mr Alexander has broken any tax laws.

There's no 'saga', and no story, it's just The Telegraph doing some sensation-seeking.

Phew, another 'non-story'.

Still studying the meaning of words.
Thanks to your advice on an other thread.

"it's just The Telegraph doing some sensation-seeking".

Phew, another 'non-story'.
That is why it is also on BBC News as well.

Is this a game of Chinese Whispers?

But wasn't it the Telegraph investigative team who unearthed the MP expenses scandal. Perhaps they should have kept quiet, then there may not have been pay-backs and stand-downs, plus prosecutions?.

"A little before that release, someone leaked all the documentation to the Daily Telegraph, presumably for money,and the Telegraph wrote it up"

My understanding (from the Telegraph itself) was a fairly large specialist team was formed (in secrecy), who undertook extensive investigations as to the facts that had been unearthed. Heather Brooke most likely never had the resources or back-up required for a story of this kind. In which case the story would have been dead before it even had a chance for mass publication.
