It is very rare for me to cheer Winston on, but his reported plans to do a private prosecution against Ross Armstrong have my full support.
I am amazed the Audit Office did not refer Armstrong to the Police or SFO. Regardless of the individual policies of each crown entity, the fundamental rationale behind expense claims are they they are to reimburse actual costs incurred, not a mechanism to make money out of.
Somewhat surprised that Rodney Hide didn’t think of doing a private prosecution himself first! Will be very popular with the public I suspect.
