Kevin Maguire, associate editor of the Daily Mirror, believes that although Lord Hanningfield did not break any rules when he allegedly "clocked in" to claim a daily attendance allowance, the "rules are wrong".
He told ITV's Daybreak: "He may not be breaking any rules but if that's the case then the rules are wrong because I don't know anybody else who could just turn up, nod to an attendant who ticks your name and then you can leave with a £300 tax-free allowance."
