I have just commented on two other blogs about state-funding for political parties here and here.
Another Blogger4Labour has just blogged on how the Times story alleging a Lib-Dem cash for honours scandal shows them playing catch by linking to Tom Watson MP. And that's fine, providing we the members are seen to be demanding that we put our own house in order.
So shouldn't we Labour bloggers be focussing on that rather than having a few cheap laughs at our political opponents? Wouldn't we have a better chance of regaining the moral high-ground and regaining the trust of the electorate if we were seen demanding that our new Leader and the Labour Party National Executive Committee got their act together? I am absolutely convinced it would be easier to persuade the electorate to vote Labour, and politically aware active citizens to join Labour if the Leadership stopped looking to taxpayers to bail out previous mismanagement of Party finances, and committed us to sorting out problems entirely of our own making.
When's that promised Bill on electoral issues going to be laid before Parliament?
