MPs' expenses mole: anger over Armed Forces' treatment led to leak - TelegraphThe mole who leaked the data has told his story for the first time, in the hope that it will shame the Government into finally supplying the right equipment for the thousands of soldiers risking their lives in Afghanistan.
Politicians “still don’t get it”, he said, adding that they were still preoccupied with their own financial situation and MPs’ claims rather than the plight of troops.
"It’s not easy to watch footage on the television news of a coffin draped in a Union Jack and then come in to work the next day and see on your computer screen what MPs are taking for themselves,” he said.
It is shame the mole doesn't realise the Government has no shame when it comes to the Armed forces.
It's always nice to see some people with integrity is still there
Maybe we shouldn't knight him .... OBE anyone?
