The Labour funding scandal has taken a fresh twist as another Cabinet minister was forced to admit he had banked "hidden" donations.
Peter Hain, the Work and Pensions Secretary, admitted that he had not registered all the donations to his unsuccessful deputy leadership campaign with electoral watchdogs as is legally required.

One can understand failure to disclose any donations whatsoever through a genuine lack of knowledge but [selectively?] to 'forget' one or perhaps more stretches the credibility of honest citizens not associated with politics.
