I don't know, I turn off my laptop and refuse to watch or follow the news for the weekend and what happens? Corruption scandals that's what. The news that Labour peers are accused of offering their services to amend laws in retrun for fees is not really that surprising. The surprising thing is that at last someone has, at least if the allegations are true, been caught out doing it.
Nor was I surprised to hear the Labour leader in the Lords was planning her own inquiry and then swiftly said that the peers in question had been "entrapped". We can all guess what that inquiry is going to conclude then. Don't be surprised either if we start to hear snippet of positive stories from the Treasury about plans for tax cuts or the raising of tax threshold in the Budget.
The bottom line is that Downing Street will want to bury this story as quickly and as swiftly as possible, and if that means creating a few stories to knock it down the agenda then they'll do it.
