Drip, drip

The papers have arrived. If your name is Peter Hain, you may want to look away now.

The Guardian claims to have more details of the scale of the breach of the rules committed by Mr Hain's deputy leadership campaign.

No-one suggests Peter Hain intentionally concealed donations but under electoral law the buck stops with the candidate.

Even among his political enemies there are those who feel sorry for the Welsh Secretary; even among his friends there are people who doubt whether his Cabinet career will survive the affair.
