With New Labour facing yet another cash for favours scandal it's little wonder that the public consider them even more sleazy than the Tories.
Oh dear, oh dear. The old Tory governments of Thatcher and Major, New Labour assured us, were 'drowned in sleaze'. Corruption was their undoing, and the constant pledges of Labour's new, young, clean politicians, led by Blair, Brown and Mandelson, were going to clean up the whole mess. Now New Labour is back for a second term with an impregnable majority, and what is this? An opinion poll finds that the public consider New Labour even more sleazy than the Tories ever were! Blair and Co regularly mock and contradict that finding.
