The House of Commons Standards Committee has revealed that the standards of sitting MPs’ from all parties are doubling every year – with a marked acceleration in the rate of MPs’ double standards since the coalition came to power.

The unsurprising revelations come not long after it was revealed that 340 MPs are claiming expenses from the taxpayer for their energy bills to heat second homes – with one claiming £5,822.

Experts say double standards have now become the norm in the UK for most people in public life – but are especially noticeable in politicians, journalists and senior banking executives.
