More Snouts in the trough


On a visit to the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant yesterday, TB may have had good cause to reflect on the toxicity of the sleaze threatening his lame-duck government. The police chief investigating allegations that Labour rewarded financial backers with honours and peerages last night sent a stark warning to the Prime Minister, revealing that he has gathered significant and valuable material during his inquiry. But Labour's sleaze goes beyond "cash-for-peerages"...
This past week, the former Labour Cabinet minister, Chris Smith, was appointed to chair the Advertising Standards Authority, for which he will be paid £120,000 for a three-day week....
Alice Brown, a Labour Party member who had advised Helen Liddell, the former Scotland Office minister was appointed to the £72,000-a-year post of Scottish Civil Service Ombudsman.

To think that the Labour Party Manifesto in 1997 criticised the evils of “unaccountable quangos and secretive government”....

The British public are getting wise though...
