Cash for Honours
My 2 pence on the likely outcomes from here on in:
1 - Charges will be brought against key Blair aides. More likely for perverting the course of justice than actually selling honours.
2- Aides, Levy, Blair all look rather bad and try to spin their way out of it. Watch some flack hit the Tories and other parties too. Blair does not have too many days left anyway (see clock in my side panel).
3- Brown 'assumes' power from Blair in May. Declares a fresh start with full state funding for political parties and a backing for a fully elected House of Lords.
4- Somehow, maybe thanks to media leaks, the trial never happens and all is forgotten by the end of the year.
Except of course, that we would no longer live in even a representative democracy. With state funded parties, why would the politicians' need to listen to voters?
