Dirty Tricks

Now I have no idea if the Tories have been misusing the Commons system as much as it would appear Labour have been.
What I would say is, from my memory of the last year of John Major's Government, the "Tory Sleaze" was largely external, i.e. it was people bribing ( too strong a word surely, lets say paying as a gift) certain MPs to do certain things. OK that's kind of corruption in my book.
But it's not fraud, and it's not ripping off the tax payer.
It does seem to me that Labour have brought that to a refined art....
And as for suggesting that the revelations are a Dirty Tory Trick.. I think John Redwood nails that beautifully.
