Anything The English Can Do, The Scots Can Do Tae

I'm just going to quote this verbatim from the BBC, because I just haven got time to write up all of Labour's election offences in my own words...

"Wendy Alexander's campaign for the Scottish Labour leadership broke the law by accepting money from a Jersey-based businessman.

Her campaign manager, Tom McCabe, accepted there was a clear breach of donation rules when a cheque for £950 was accepted from developer Paul Green.

The MSP who sought the donation, Charlie Gordon, has quit as Labour's transport spokesman at Holyrood.

The party has reported the matter to the Electoral Commission.

During a press conference, Mr McCabe said the incident had cast a shadow over Ms Alexander's leadership campaign and that arrangements were being made to return the money.

It is illegal for people who are based off-shore to donate to a UK political party.

At first, Ms Alexander's campaign team said the money had been donated legitimately through a Glasgow company, but has now admitted that Mr Green's name was on the cheque."

Is there anyone in the Labour government who hasn't broken the law ?

Assuming that the last question wasn't rhetorical, then the answer is probably no.
