Peter Hain

Has a secretary: Hain defends job for mother, 80.

Despite being supported by civil servants, SpAds, private secretaries and general office secretaries on becoming a Minister in 1997, Peter Hain continued to pay Adelaine Hain £5,400 a year. OK, Old Harrovian and flamboyant fashionista Henry Conway wouldn't be able to buy a vast number of cocktails at Mahiki for a piddling sum like that. And it wouldn't buy an excessive amount of lipstick for Macaroon's sister-in-law. But you know what we always say in the Labour Party. It's the principle that counts. Sleaze is sleaze wherever it is found.
