Blair just doesn't care about sleaze

Sir Alistair GrahamThe chairman of the committee on standards in public life could not be blunter about Blair's sleazy government:

“I’ve been disappointed that the prime minister has not given greater emphasis to standards in governing the country and I think it’s a major error of judgment. He sees standards as a peripheral, minor issue not worthy of serious consideration. Well, I think it is demonstrated by opinion polls that the public think this government is as sleazy as the last. He has paid a heavy price for ignoring standards.”
