David Cameron (left) with Chris Davies (centre). When this photo was taken in 2014, he was just a Tory candidate; now he's a Tory MP - unless Dyfed Powys Police decide he has fiddled his expenses and prosecutes him. If that happens, he may end up a jailbird.

But you really should check in and read it anyway.

Channel 4 News has covered the story very well, but can only discuss the investigations its newsgatherers know are taking place.

This means somebody needs to have contacted them to say an investigation is ongoing, and they need to have received confirmation from the police.

So I should really send in an email to point out that Dyfed Powys Police – a force not mentioned in the report – is apparently investigating Montgomershire MP Glyn Davies, and definitely investigating Brecon and Radnorshire MP Chris Davies.

I know, because I reported him.

I had confirmation that the Financial Crime Team is looking into the matter earlier today.

I bet I’m not the only one to have done this in constituencies not mentioned by Channel 4 News or the Daily Mirror, either.

Who knows how many MPs and candidates will end up in disgrace as a result of the Conservatives’ disgraceful 2015 campaign?

Election laws exist to protect our democracy and ensure a level playing field. Candidates and parties must declare all their campaign spending, and stick within spending limits, to stop richer parties gaining an unfair advantage.Yet a Channel 4 investigation has uncovered compelling evidence suggesting large-scale and systematic abuse of election rules by the Conservative Party in last year’s General Election and three key by-elections in 2014.

The alleged abuse strikes at the very heart of fairness in Britain and the integrity of our democracy. Now the Electoral Commission has launched an investigation, along with ten police forces across the country.
