So, the Met is being called in to investigate the alleged financial illegality in the funding of the Labour Party. Meanwhile, according to the latest YouGov poll, the Tories now have an 11 point lead, the biggest since 1988.
I must admit, I used to have a lot of time for Broon. I suspect that if he had had the bottle to challenge for the Labour leadership earlier (in 1992, for example, he could have cemented himself in to being the eventual successor to John Smith), and had been successful, the country would have been better governed over the last ten years. However, he had to wait too long. That meant too much frustration for him all those years and, as David Cameron said at PMQs yesterday, he is now increasingly not cut out for the job.
New Labour has been sleazy for years. It is a shame that Bliar managed to move on, while Broon is the man who is likely to be destroyed by it, but destroyed he will be.
