The talk of the steamie is the resignation of Peter Hain as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Secretary of State for Wales due to the Electoral Commission referring the issue of the undeclared financial contributions to his (unsuccessful) Labour Party deputy leadership campaign.
The big question now is will this affect Wendy Alexander and the investigation into the illegal donation she admits receiving during her (successful, but then she was the only candidate) Scottish Labour Party leadership campaign.
Well, I suppose time will provide the answer to that question, and I have no idea whether it has any implications for Wendy. I have successfully managed to avoid personal speculation on this matter on this blog thus far, and you won't hear any bold predictions from me about likely outcomes.
Certainly though, the news of Peter Hain's resignation caused a bit of a media scrum (or a stramash as Arthur Montford might have had it) around Wendy Alexander at the Parliament today, and as you might expect there is much speculation amongst the press on this matter.
I must say though, it would be odd if the Electoral Commission referred only Mr Hain's situation to the police and not any others. But then it is a strange old world we live in.
