    BLAIR'S UNION CAP WON'T FIT - Kevin Maguire, Mirror.co.uk
    Had Blair wandered into a gathering of his own MPs this week, the leader would have encountered a lynch mob accusing him of high treason.

    The ugly meeting behind the supposed privacy of the closed doors of a Commons committee room vowed to resist to the bitter end proposals to cap union donations at £50,000.

    "What an irony," moaned Dennis Skinner, the Beast of Bolsover, "that trade union money is the only clean money in politics and it's under attack because of loans-for-Lordships."
