Try spinning this

Since the news broke that Tony Blair's Labour fundraisers were offering peerages in exchange for financial support, Blair proxies have been busy downplaying the story, saying that "nothing will flow" from it and dismissing it as "passing political hoo-ha".

So much for that line of spin.

What New Labour has done is corruption, pure and simple. It is illegal, and people ought to go to jail for it. And if they don't, it will be more because of their ability to cover their arses and shred incriminating documents than any lack of guilt on their part.
