Looks like when I said Peter Hain had four problems at the moment, I should have said five.
His website – www.peterhain.org – says at the bottom, “This website is funded by the Communications Allowance”. Now that’s ok in itself – MPs are allowed to use the funds they receive to communicate online. However, what they’re not allowed to do is to use the money for party politics.
So it’s a bit of a problem, that the site says “please use this site to join the debate about Labour’s future.”
That’d be party politics methinks. Oops.
