I WISH to commend your newspaper for making a factual report on the expenses claimed by our MP Jonathan Djanogly.

Unlike The Daily Telegraph you have not descended into tabloid journalism. You have double-checked the facts with our MP only to discover the Telegraph misrepresented the facts. In their efforts to sell more newspapers, they distorted the details of a very hard working, conscientious and honest MP. They made no mention of his wife, Rebecca, who also works very hard with her husband and on her own without claiming any wages or expenses.

It is correct to expose MPs who have acted fraudulently by abusing the system. However, at this difficult time, we should be supporting honest and competent MPs.
