Electorate should agree expenses

DOES anybody actually know who signs off and agrees politicians' expenses? Perhaps we should be investigating that as well?

What criteria will they use to work out if they are valid or not, now that, presumably, all expenses will need to be vouched for?

Can we (as I do in my workplace) make politicians use their own credit cards to pay for expenses, and then pay them back when the claims are classed as valid after having been scrutinised by their superiors, in this case, the Irish electorate?
