I wonder if you can guess who said these words:

"They are up to their necks in sleaze. Can you believe that this lot is in charge? Morality is measured in more than just money. It's about right and wrong. We are a party of principle. We will earn the trust of the British people. We've had enough lies. Enough sleaze."

That's right - John Prescott in his 1996 Labour Conference speech. The stench of hyprocrisy is overpowering and if this is another of those dreadful New Labour attempts to drown out their own worse news (Charles Clarke and the vanishing criminals), it will not work.

It is only inevitable that they should evolve from finding opportunities to "bury bad news" to actually doing the burying.

Regardless of all the Labour sleaze, have you seen Iain Dale's report today on the predicted results for next week's local elections? No mention of Cambs though.

The sleaze might turn people off Labour, but will they want to vote Tory?
