MPs' expenses: Why mole leaked details
"The whistleblower who leaked details of MPs' expenses to the Daily Telegraph has claimed he was motivated by anger over the government's failure to provide adequate equipment for British troops.
"The civilian employee, who has not been named and who was among the staff responsible for processing parliamentary expenses, said he leaked details of the lavish claims after becoming indignant about the discrepancy between investment in the armed forces and the receipts put in by MPs for items such as plasma TVs and duck islands.
"The Daily Telegraph reports that his colleagues at the Stationery Office, where the claims are processed, included serving soldiers who were "moonlighting" to buy body armour and other vital equipment."
