Lord Snorty

Just a quick thought on Baron Sewel, recently caught in his apartment with 2 prostitutes and a load of cocaine. No question that he did wrong and as someone who is responsible for upholding standards in the House of Lords it's pretty indefensible. But who decided to film this, and why did it come out now?

Presumably he has been up to this sort of thing for a good few years, and much as The Sun loves a salacious scoop, planting hidden cameras on prostitutes to catch a serving politician dosen't really seem their style, especially post Leveson. Why Sewel? I'm sure he's not the only one. Why now?

As the Westminster paedophile scandal unfolds, centred around Dolphin Square, where Lord Sewel's flat was, you have to wonder if there's a bit more to it than simply a tabloid defending the public interest.
