Today’s moral compass update

  1. Labour Minister Lord Digby Jones has been caught in a row over his shareholding in a firm set to benefit significantly from government plans for the NHS.
  2. Two Labour MPs have reported 80 Conservative MPs to the Electoral Commission over donations from unincorporated associations.
  3. Good news for Peter Hain: he has won the backing of his local constituency party. (Bad news: this is pretty much like the owner of a football club saying they have full confidence in their manager.)

Meanwhile, in other news Paddy Ashdown is getting a new job as UN envoy to Afghanistan.
