More Tory Shoe Shuffling Over Ashcroft

More damaging info has come out with regards to the Ashcroft affair. It seems that not only has William Hague been behaving questionably over this issue, but that David Cameron has as well.
At best they are, as the Political Scrapbook blogger has pointed out, worked on a "Don't ask, don't tell!" policy. At worst these are nasty attempts to hoodwink the electorate and play shabby electoral games by cheating. I like to think the former, but it doesn't show the Tory leadership as statesmanlike material, and before some Conservative posters start bleating about Labour not being any better, is that the most feeble excuse you can have for a Party which aspires for government!

Not wanting to condone what has been going on but I'm sure you're aware of the Biblical saying about taking the plank out of your own eye before pointed out the log in your neighbour's eye.

The Tories seem to have forgotten that you don't establish your own innocence by asserting the guilt of other.
