Expense Scandal Rocks British Parliament

Hosted by

Michael Martin has been a Member of Britain's House of Commons from Glasgow for 30 years and Speaker for nine. Public outrage at Parliament has reached such a pitch that the Martin has been forced to resign — the first time that's happened in 300 years. It's all about expense accounts and reimbursements for lavish excesses, reports of which were leaked to the press. Jonathan Freedland is a columnist at the Guardian newspaper.
