The Little Red Book goes live

The Little Red Book of New Labour sleaze is now on sale at all good bookshops and also has its ownwebsite.

The book, detailing 101 scandals to have hit the government since the whiter-than-white one came to power in 1997, has been put together by Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes with help from around 30 or so political bloggers, including myself.

For what it's worth, I contributed entries on Ron Davies's "moment of madness," the award of peerages to deadbeat old MPs in return for safe Labour seats for Blair favourites, the routine trashing of out-of-favour ministers by Alastair Campbell and Co, and the "dodgy dossier" under which the country went to war with Iraq.

As Guido says - buy this book, and throw it at Tony Blair every time he claims to be a "pretty straight kind of guy."

I look forward to reading your entry in this little gem. I contributed something too at the very last minute last Sunday am, way after deadline.

We should almost have enough material now for a follow-up edition.
