This is what transparency looks like

The Greens have released their Parliamentary expenses for the year to April 30 [PDF], with details of how much their MPs have spent on air travel, taxis, accomodation and living in Wellington. There don't seem to be any tremendous surprises - but with a sample of only nine MPs, its difficult to know what is normal and what is not.

The onus is now on the other parties to follow suit. Hopefully they will do so soon.
