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.

I think he wore out my sympathy a few months ago, but yes, I think he meant well. He is, perhaps, a bit too comfortable with the whole 'old boy network' thing, and I still find the Lib. Dem. attempt to undermine the safety of rape victims in order to protect men repulsive.

Trust me, a lot of the LibDems were repulsed by that one too. A friend of mine wrote this last year:

Thank you for the link: our local LDs seemed rather shifty about the whole thing.
