Ex-Labour MP Jim Devine sentenced to 16 months in prison

The former Labour MP Jim Devine has become the third MP to be jailed over the expenses scandal after being sentenced to 16 months at the Old Bailey.

He was the first MP to plead not guilty and face trial over expenses fraud.

Devine was formally declared bankrupt last month after failing to pay Kinley [his office manager] £35,000 for unfair dismissal.

My comment: Many more MPs thinking..."There but for the grace of God go I".
