In a highly personal onslaught, the Tory leader will accuse the Prime Minister of “tolerating the disgusting sight” of Labour MPs attempting to use Parliamentary privilege to escape prosecution.
He will also claim that Mr Brown’s “dithering” and failure to take decisive action has made the scandal even worse, and brand him a “shameless defender of the old elite”.
And Mr Cameron is set to promise that the Tories will overhaul historic Parliamentary principles if they win the election to stop MPs attempting to use them to evade justice.
In a speech about the Parliamentary expenses scandal, Mr Cameron will say: “How Gordon Brown can claim to be a reformer with a straight face, I just don’t know.
“The character of his Government – secretive, power-hoarding, controlling – is his character.” The speech comes after it emerged that three Labour MPs facing prosecution for alleged expenses fraud could still get “golden goodbye” payoffs worth tens of thousands of pounds even if found guilty by the courts.
