How could anyone be cynical about New Labour? The party came to power promising to end the stink of sleaze and corruption that enveloped the Tories. Now we see:
- LORD IRVINE: caught fundraising for Labour from lawyers when he is the Lord Chancellor.
- PETER MANDELSON: forced to resign twice because of a dodgy loan from a big business pal and a dodgy passport for a big business friend.
- KEITH VAZ: exposed for having lots of dodgy business friends.
- MICHAEL MEACHER: revealed to have more houses than any sane person would know what to do with after condemning others for doing the same.
