It may be a slight exaggeration to talk of "open warfare" between HH and GB but it is impossible to have an enquiry into the matter reporting back to her (so she cannot continue as Party Chairman) and she plainly cannot continue as Leader of the House: consider her ridiculous "Nursery Rhyme" performance yesterday, she is repeatedly rebuked by the Speaker and then refers to him as "Mr Deputy Speaker"! Ominously "her staff declined to comment on a report that she took out other bank loans [for her campaign] which have not been declared ...as the law requires."
The fundamental threads that run through all 4 major scandals (Rock, Data, Services and Donations) are arrogance and indecisiveness. It is however also remarkable that three of them all emanate from the Newcastle area. This is partly because the North East is a Labour Client State. Chris Leslie, Brown's campagn coordinator who tore up Janet Kidd's cheque but then "helpfully" suggested to Harriet Harman that she solicit a donation from her (after Harman's campaign had closed!!) also seems to have North-Eastern connections. The FT says that £33.6k of the £46.7k that Harman's campaign raised was raised after she was elected - this is quite worrying and raises the question of how the campaign was funded.
Meanwhile the you.gov poll in the Telegraph shows an 11 point C Lead. Although the Weighted Moving Average which I track "only" shows an 8.4 point C lead, but this is the highest since I started the calculations. Also you.gov retrospectively generally has the C Lead spot on. We shall see what happens, but I'll be surprised if Labour is above 30% in the polls come Jan.
PS: The Law on the question of donations is quite interesting. It's clear that making a donation on someone's behalf without declaring whose is a criminal offense. Also "A donation received by a registered party must not be accepted by the party if (b) the party is (whether because the donation is given anonymously or by reason of any deception or concealment or otherwise) unable to ascertain the identity of that person." In addition, either "the Treasurer of the Party" or "The Party and the Treasurer" could be guilty of an offence.
