| "You've always been a prong"
"You mean the Freedom of Information Act applies to US???" says an indignant and outraged politician...yes it does. And so we have 'On Expenses',a wonderfully over-the-top and laugh-out-loud dramatisation of the parliamentary expenses scandal. Brian Cox, Scotland's finest living actor, looks like he really enjoyed flexing his hitherto unearthed comedic chops for this. And who knew Anna Maxwell Martin would have made such a great American? There's also a marvellous, faultless supporting cast and some real-life politicians appearing as unwanted extras. Schadenfreude is not an admirable trait, but in this case I think we should be forgiven.
