It's not over yet - 'Abrahams' is the key.

Brown may well have hoped his rapid admission of guilt yesterday, combined with the almost supersonic resignation of Peter Watts, would lead to the press forgetting this affair by the weekend. Fat chance.

It now emerges that David Abrahams, who is also known as David Martin, aged either 53 or 63, has something of a history with Labour. He invented a wife and children when he applied for selection as a Labour candidate; he was active in Labour Friends of Israel, but was forced to leave under some sort of cloud. He was, as Stephen Pollard notes on the Spectator site, a pushy and self-aggrandising attender at Labour events, keen to forge links with the party mandarins, and thus well-known to those who are now seeking to distance themselves from contagion. There is also the matter of the curious planning decision, and the source of Mr Abraham's / Martin's wealth.

Keep digging, folks. The Sundays should make a good read this week.
