Hello Le_addeur_noir,

I believe it was armed robbery but can't remember the details.

Yep, allegedly, he's a big fan of the shinners too, right up to singing rebel songs at football matches.

Hain was always a slimy SOB.

He was up before the beak in the seventies,but got off,can't remember what for.
Wiki Entry

In 1972 he was sent a letter bomb that failed to explode because of faulty wiring. In 1976 Hain was tried for, and acquitted of, a 1974 bank robbery, allegedly having been framed by South African intelligence agents. Two schoolboys positively identified him. A deliberate "double" may have taken part in the robbery. Despite modern DNA techniques and mass fingerprinting now being available no further investigation of this unsolved case is known to have taken place. Six MPs, led by Liberal David Steel, called for the resignation of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Norman Skelhorn, over the Hain case.
With any luck plod will catch up with him properly this time..

Another one of these two for the price of one ministers who's so talented he can do two jobs.

True to form and by todays cabinet standards, he is blaming his aides for this 'oversight'. Not that long ago he 'forgot' to declare £5k. The arrogance and ego of this man defies description. Utter t#sser!!

Perhaps the most widely loathed mainland politician ever to enter Stormont. The man has the morals of a children's television presenter. Hang him.

I don't much like champagne, but if that oily creep ever does go down I'll break open a bottle of Krug and finally admit that there is a God. Of all the stomach-turning Neue Arbeit Sh*t Parade, he's the one that most sets my teeth on edge (with the possible exception of Pansy Mandy). Crack on, Mr Plod.

_______________________________________

Peter Hain has a well recorded history going back to the time he was up for armed robbery and scattering nails on the pitch at Twickenham. That was some time ago, however, there was the minor matter of him being found guilty of paying his constituency office workers below the minimum wage. He was foung guilty at Neath Magistrates Court last year and fined £2000 (check).

A slimy chancer who has never held a proper job in his life, Hain epitomises all that is wrong with the political system as it stands.

Peter Hain is a man of integrity without a dishonest bone in his body.
I know this to be true because a liabour MP said so on TV last night.
How can you believe that he would lie about antything...shame on you.

I was particularly annoyed this morning when an apologist for Hain stated that although he (Hain) had broken the law in not declaring the money it was probable that he didn't realise that he had broken the law, implying that it was OK in that case. I must remember that when I forget to purchase the Congestion Charge or not notice that I've exceeded the speed limit. I was always lead to believe that ignorance of the law was no defence.

It isn't, in your case. But I fear that Gordon will protect his own, and treat the law like a ass when it comes to Labour fundraising (not to mention possible backhanders). The collective status of this Cabinet is lower than a limbo-dancer's ringpiece.

He should receive the same punishment as someone who has 'forgotten' to declare £100,000 to the tax man.
