Forget the actualities of the last scandal that is engulfing the Labour Party and Brown's Government. There is a much more important question that needs to be answered. What do we call it? This point has been raised by the Times sketch writer Ann Trenemen today. 'Cash for no Honours?' was one of her suggestions.
So here's the deal, it's competition time. Let's name this latest scandal and winner will get...erm... a blank cheque from Mickey Mouse made of rubber made out for £25,000 that you could either try to cash or perhaps give to the Labour Party. I was thinking 'Cyphergate' maybe. I considered 'HotpointGate' but I think Hotpoint - who clearly make marvellous washing machines -might not be best pleased with their name being dragged through the Brown stuff.
You never know, your entry could end up being recorded in the anals [sic] of British political history if it's really good, although don't bet on it! Over to you.
