ABOVE: a FRIEND of the People and one who has defended their integrity against the corruption and decadence so evidently in place at Wasteminster.
John Wick, the man who orchestrated the leak of the MPs expenses files to The Daily Telegraph, explains why and how he did it.
In May, the Telegraph started the daily publication of the “Expenses Files” after I gave them a hard drive showing a complete uncensored copy of every expenses claimed by every MP over a four year period.
I had no understanding at that time, how long the Telegraph’s campaign would last or what the final result would be. Although I still do not know the final result we have reached an important point with the publication of No Expenses Spared, the official account of how the expenses campaign started and how it progressed. It makes for fascinating reading.
