Ben Brogan has an absolute must read post on this whole business of Peter Hain and the donations. As Ben writes,

“For the moment Downing Street's confidence remains solid, in part because if he goes then so do Harriet Harman and Wendy Alexander. But can Mr Brown, with all his talk of new politics, afford to tolerate having around him quite so many people who claim entitlement to senior public posts while at the same time showing such extraordinary disregard for the basics of electoral law?”

Do read the whole thing.
