What the departing Speical Adviser did was against the existing Codes. It does not take a new Code to stop this happening again..
What it will take is a complete change of approach and changes of personnel. When Cabinet members like Mr Balls and Miss Cooper spend time seeking to misrepresent Conservatives instead of answering questions and improving the performance of their departments we can see that the approach of bash the Tories rather than fix the country is endemic to this regime at high levels.
Just listen for a few days to the way Labour Ministers handle debates and fail to answer questions in the Commons. It was not just one Special Adviser who thought it was about getting the Tories. If Mr Brown really really wants to stop it he has to call in his senior people and tell them all the clean up the government’s act, and he needs to sack a few more of the worst offenders.
