Mirror associate editor: Rules for the Lords 'are wrong'

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."
