Filkin’s Revenge

New Labour’s Gang of Three was part of that arrogant alliance of MPs who have ruthlessly pursued their own interests, ignoring the public good, for the last 13 years. In 1999, they united to crush Elizabeth Filkin, the former Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, who exposed the misdeeds of Mandelson and John Read. Later they launched a similar smear campaign against Assistant Commissioner John Yates when the Metropolitan Police investigated the sale of honours. These vicious attacks were sanctioned at the highest level and executed by the usual suspects in New Labour gang of “enforcers”. The campaigns against Filkin and Yates reflected the profound hostility felt by Brown-Blair to any independent institution embodying the tradition of public duty.
