Could someone explain why the Labour Party has withdrawn the whip from Denis MacShane, and at the same time promoted Phil Woolas to a frontbench post?
MacShane has not been arrested. He has been charged with nothing, and frankly I doubt he ever will be. Yet Woolas is the first MP in decades to be up before an Election Court. Neither have been found guilty, and may never be, but it does seem that the Labour Party is applying some very odd rules of natural justice here.
