Today’s Tory proposals to put a cap on party donations and to reduce the number of MPs come on another day when there are more sleaze stories.

Today we have allegations about Ruth Kelly’s expenses:

"The Conservatives are calling for an investigation into claims that
Ruth Kelly, the Education Secretary, has a “black hole” in her Commons
expenses. Ms
Kelly has been accused of claiming £72,000 to cover utility bills and
interest payments that she makes on her mortgage for her constituency
home near Bolton."

And another Lord admitting to Labour loans:Lord_sainsbury

"The Labour Party was dealt another embarrassing blow last night when Lord Sainsbury said he had also lent the party £2m."

The Guardian provides a balanced Labour vs. Tories sleaze list, it won’t be long before voters see that balance weighing on this government even more heavily.
