I'm watching Hazel Blears on Sky News saying that she is going to pay the capital gains tax of £13,000 on her house sale, even though she says it wasn't liable. It was an emotional interview with Sky's Jon Craig and she appeared that she might break down at any moment. Call me an old softie, but I really felt she was talking from the heart. I know people think I have a blind spot regarding Ms Blears, but I like to think I can recognise a genuine person when I see one. Politics is politics, but this gesture is one I believe to be heartfelt and genuine.
Now, will Geoff Hoon, Alistair Darling and James Purnell follow suit?
