What would Darnton say?

If you're wondering about the impact of yesterday's grudging 'Payback' announcement on the Darnton V Clark case, then the answer in a word is: "nothing." The case is still on. As Bernard Darnton clarified yesterday:

Libertarianz leader Bernard Darnton this afternoon welcomed Labour's promise to repay the money they misappropriated for their election spending but noted that paying it back isn't enough.

"As the Speaker points out in her report on the matter, paying the money back doesn't make the spending any less illegal," said Darnton.

"The real problem here is not really the amount of money misspent. It's the fact that the Government thinks it is above the law."

  1. Analogy:

    You are the Wilderbeast that just broke a leg.

    What chance those lions are going to cut you some slack and the other Wilderbeasts are happy knowing they are safe for a couple of days.
