Brown Envelopes?

So it appears that Gordon Brown has reached the stage where he must bribe members of his own party in order to get bills through parliament. The Tories appeared, grinning smugly, at prime minister's questions brandishing a letter from Geoff Hoon to Keith Vaz (or Nigel Keith Anthony Standish Vaz, if you prefer) intimating that Mr. Vaz would be justly rewarded for supporting the Orwellian 42-days detention bill.

This really is a sorry state of affairs for Labour. It would have been a minor coup had he been found converting Tory party members to his worldview, but when it's a member of your own party, it simply smacks of desperation. For god's sake Gordon, pull it together man!
