Tory sleaze

So, they've been back in power a bit more than a year, and already we are mired in standard Tory sleaze. (Yes, I know other parties have their sleaze too, and Cherie Blair was friends with Ms Brooks.) Cameron has got away with a lot of stuff in the last year and pushed most of the opprobrium onto Clegg. But this time, he hasn't got the option.
Yes, I am enjoying this. What do you expect? I'm Old Labour.

Plainly, you have not been listening to Radio 5 or the World Service, where Campbell has been pontificating at length.

No, I've been following BBC and Guardian newsfeeds for the most part. I'm curious. What has Campbell been saying?

Oh, how everyone in both major parties was in bed with Murdoch, and how he did warn both Blair and Brown to be a tad careful - but his analysis of how Murdoch and his cronies were trying to spin the stories was to the point and very enlightening.

But everyone in both major parties was in bed with Murdoch. I thought that was obvious, particularly after the first leaders' debate.

What was Campbell's analysis?

Murdoch has rather created that situation, though, so there is blame on all sides. (And there is some hint that pressure tactics were used, at least on Brown. Blair doubtless loved the attention.)
