    New Labour sleaze - Secret loans generated over £10 million

    Well, those loans aren't so secret anymore. This report from today's Guardian:

    Mr Dromey issued a statement late on Wednesday revealing he had been kept in the dark about the loans, and accusing Downing Street of treating elected party officials with contempt.

    The deputy prime minister, John Prescott, and the party chairman, Ian McCartney, had met Mr Dromey only hours earlier. They believed they had an agreement that he would not discuss the issue further until the party's national executive met on Tuesday.

    But Mr Dromey's allies said he went public because he felt he had not received the right assurances at the meeting. They stressed he was not accusing Mr Blair of breaking the law or offering peerages for cash.

    A senior Blairite returned fire, accusing Mr Dromey of "trying to put the final knife into the heart of Tony Blair on behalf of Gordon Brown".

    There is no evidence that Mr Brown or his allies were involved in any plot to undermine Mr Blair.
