Man wants to keep his children safe outrage

Any story related to MP expenses is almost inevitably going to be news these days. But there seems to be little common sense in the way the news of renovations to the Speaker's flat has been reported.

The new Speaker, John Bercow, has three children under five and is undertaking improvements to make the home both child-safe and child-friendly.

It is curious to see it splashed on the Telegraph front page as their main story.

But how come the Mail and Express don't even bother to mention Bercow's children until the fifth paragraph of the story - on their website, it's even below a picture. The message board people are all suitably outraged that a father wants to keep his one year old safe.

The only surprise is the Taxpayer's Alliance aren't quoted anywhere
