BBC – Labour tries to dig up Tory past: Labour is trying to use new openness laws to dig up electioneering material about Conservative leader Michael Howard’s time in government. Requests for the documents have been put in by a range of Labour politicians and party members, a party spokesman told the BBC News website. They include queries about Mr Howard’s role in the poll tax and claims he fast-tracked a passport application. Ministers are normally barred access to the private files of past governments.
Oh, this is so begging to be flipped on its head. Where shall we begin digging?
