5th April 2019

Many A-Level Sociology students may not be familiar with/remember the MP expense scandal but the following article (and accompanying documentary - details at the end of the article) explores the events and repercussions of the scandal.

Although MPs claiming money for some expenses is not illegal, some parliamentarians were prosecuted for false accounting (mortgage fraud).

The article could be used for the Crime and Deviance unit (white collar crime).
