The PM has announced that nobody who 'broke the rules' may stand as a Labour candidate. However, as all his miscreant MPs have been at pains to point out that their expense claims were approved as being within the 'rules', the PM's statement has no meaning whatever, except to show that he still doesn't 'get it'. He has an opportunity to demonstrate that his tin ear has been a touche tuned by publicly stating that he will not be recommending Gorbals Mick for a peerage, since he has resigned in dubious circumstances, unlike his predecessors. However I have no doubt that Gordon lacks the moral courage to do this. A peerage for someone who has personally overseen the trashing of the reputation of the Mother of Parliaments would just be plain revolting.
