They know the price of everything and the value of nothing

I’ve refrained from commenting on the Peter Hain business because everyone else is doing just that. However, this morning listening to the news it struck me that the whole thing is just contemptible. For me there’s no way they can spin this whole business as anything other than dodgy. The 'I was busy and I'm ever so sorry' argument is just plain daft. Can anyone imagine someone with a real job spinning this kind of tosh?

The crucial thing is the deviousness of channelling money though the 'so called' think tank. Why would you?

And unless anyone should lose sight of this in the argument, precisely why would someone need £103,000 to fight a deputy leadership campaign? How many first class stamps can you get for that? It shows above all else how screwed the system is. People down in London, and especially the media, may think £100,000 is not a lot - especially since billions have now taken over from millions. As we’re fond of saying in this house - They know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Out here in the real world we think it's a world gone crazy.
