Throwaway Thought of the Day

A quick throwaway post first thing in the morning, but isn't it rather funny that had the four Lords that have been accused of dodgy dealings been Tories, Cameron would have be labelled a ditherer amongst all other things for not having suspended the whip pending investigation by Labour. Gordon brown on the other hand does nothing and there is not a peep of comment about it.

Probably because we've come to expect nothing less from Gordon. Every day the cracks in the fabric get wider and this had just slipped between the latest...

You're right though, plenty of comments on the blogs, but frighteningly little elsewhere. What gets me is that they have the temerity to insist they have done nothing wrong. They may have been legally within their bounds, but morally? Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

Good point on the Adam Smith blog quoting PJ O'Rourke: "When buying and selling are subject to legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are the legislators."

Nip over to Chris Pauls blog; he has plenty to say...mainly around how this isn't as bad as the Tories and how they have done nothing wrong etc. etc. etc.
