The Professors passion for "The Science of Deceit" started here...

Employed by the Ministry (in a covert capacity) to help introduce the law ending dishonest politics, you can see his hand all over the posts of past.

Current political circumstances have forced him to reveal himself and as we speak, MPs are signing up to re-introduce The Elected Representatives (Prohibition of Deception) Bill for debate with over 80,000 voters supporting them.

Posts before Jan '08 are purely for the record (with hindsight they make fascinating reading). Posts after May 13th mark the Professor's return.

BREAKING NEWS - 'Labour Leadership candidate' supports Ministry Bill

John McDonnell MP, a staunch supporter of our Bill has been touted by the Independent as Gordon Brown's stalking horse, the man behind the campaign to oust him.

John told us not 5 minutes ago in no uncertain terms - he does "not want to be an stalking horse candidate but a serious candidate"... but if there is a leadership contest he "will promote our proposals as part of his platform", meaning the Elected Representatives (Prohibition of Deception) Bill would be a key of his plans to make MPs accountable and restore public trust.

All this and No. 10 confirmed this morning that as we speak, they are 'looking at our Bill'. Shame they didn't get around to it a month ago. No surprise - they'd posted their own self-regulatory 'reforms' just before we spoke to them.

You may remember John as the man suspended from the House of Commons - they thought he was gonna deck Geoff Hoon in the chamber.

Needless to say, we like the cut of his jib. If Gordon had decked Blears we might like the cut of his.
