They just don't get it, do they?  Listening to Harriet Harman being interviewed on the Today Programme just now, and she's sticking to the kind of response pioneered by Sir Stuart Bell last night.  The emphasis, as this quote shows, was on evasion and blame-shifting:

"My judgement is this: our system does not have the corruption that obtains in other countries.  Most MPs enter politics for public service, with obvious exception of MPs like Derek Conway."

Hm.  I expect the court of public opinion will feel differently.
