Hain's resignation - Labour's rot continues

Well it's been a long time coming, but Hain has finally resigned. I would have thought that the Prime Minister describing his Work and Pensions Secretary and Welsh Secretary "Incompetent" would have been the cue for the orange one to exit the stage. Of course, no-one could expect Brown to have the guts to actually sack him.

It will be interesting to see how far this one goes. Wendy Alexander and Harriet Harman face similar difficulties relating to campaign finance, and there have been suggestions that this resignation, accompanied by yet another police investigation into Labour's finances, is just the thin edge of the wedge. A series of resignations would seriously undermine the government, as happened during the Major years.

There's one person who any article about the resignation of Hain has to mention. It was Guido who first uncovered the dodgy dealings in the Hain camp, having previously seriously undermined the Hain campain in the first place.
