Stephen Byers - an honest politician?

Is the truth going to be revealed about what went on in the lead-up to the Railtrack collapse? I certainly hope so! In all the photographs or video footage I have seen of this paragon of Labour virtue in the past week or so I cannot decide whether it is the look of a deeply guilty individual whose chicanery is about to be proved in court, or someone who is simply profoundly embarrassed; he certainly does not look comfortable.

PS/ I have no personal financial stake in the court proceedings currently underway, except that as a taxpapyer I will undoubtedly have to assist in picking up the tab, as usual, if the plaintiffs succeed in proving their case. Accepting personal responsibility for anything does not seem to be part of Labour's code.
