John Major, Labour and sleaze

John Major has been have a dig at Labour for their attacks on the "sleaze" of his government when they are no better themselves.

The best Labour can do in return is this from Graham Allen:
"During his tenure donations were not all declare and foreign donations were commonplace. It took a Labour government to end those scandals and introduce legislation to bring greater transparency to party funding."
You can hardly claim credit for passing new laws if you then go on to arrange your party's affairs so that you can get round them. It's not enough to make laws: you have to obey them.
