Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it

In the dying days of an unpopular government a Cabinet minister resigns pledging to clear his name. Jonathan Aitken ended up serving time in prison, I wonder how far Peter Hain is willing to take the parallels?
Dizzy's suggestion of specific bank accounts is looking more and more sensible by the day. I also think the Electoral Commission should take complete control over donation registration (the register of members interests can just point at the data for each member) and be given teeth to apply immediate financial penalties and bring their own charges to the the DPP.
