With Blair and his comrades being questioned about the cash for honours scandal, they may spend some time considering how they would fare if the rules they are trying to impose on others were to be used on them right now. How would they like it if labour MPs were simply assumed guilty and had their assets confiscated while being given the opportunity to appeal to prove their innocence? And shouldn’t they be given asbos banning them from loitering inside or in the vicinity of parliament, where those crimes are assumed to have taken place? Should they not also be placed under house arrest and barred from contacting their party’s supporters
Clearly, if rules like these are needed for organised crime in general, they should be needed in this case also. After all, no criminal organisation is more difficult to prosecute than one which can also alter the rules underlying its prosecution.
