The jailing of ex-MP Denis MacShane for making bogus expense claims was "not justice", said his former Labour colleague Tom Harris.

Harris also made a reference to Liberal Democrat David Laws, who has been appointed a minister despite revelations that he claimed allowances to pay his partner rent for the London flat where they lived.
If only @denismacshane had claimed he was only only trying to cover up his sexuality, he'd be back on the front bench by now.
