Kelvin MacKenzie, the former editor of the Sun, always manages to pop up and give us his own brand of moralising, for which he's been well rewarded over the years. So it was good to hear him a little flustered this morning on the Today programme, when Evan Davis asked him why, in fact, it was wrong for an MP to contribute to the rent of a house shared with a partner. Mackenzie works in more broad brush approaches than this, where there are no ambiguities or nuances, and naturally enough went a little quieter than normal. A pleasant interlude. Iain Dale, on the same programme, was also pursuing what has been his very effective explanation of the Laws issue since it started (see here, for example).
