Stephen Byers 'sleaze-bucket' extraordinaire

[Ex-?]Labour and ex-Cabinet Minister Stephen Byers latest 'fall from grace', along with his [ex-?]Labour colleagues Patricia Hewitt and Geoff Hoon is merely the latest sign that this Labour government stinks and has no place in our national politics.

Almost 5 years ago I wrote a couple of blog articles about Stephen Byers's last brush with the truth (a concept he seems to be bizarrely ambiguous about) - see here and here. This related to the collapse of Railtrack in the aftermath of which this former Transport Minister was forced to admit to lying in the High Court in London:

"It was not a truthful statement and I apologise for that. I can't remember the motivations behind it."

- and that last bit about not being able to remember the motivations behind it made me cringe for him then, just as it does now. All three of these crooks are saying they have 'done nothing wrong'. Serial liars, the lot of them!

PS/ I already signed Guido's petition to Her Majesty the Queen last night, seeking to have Stephen Byers stripped of his membership of the Privy Council - see article here. If you wish to sign the petition too, please click here.
