Lord Neill’s recommendation that politicians and the ad industry

should agree a new code for party political advertising may be a forlorn

hope.



Most people agree that the present system is an unsatisfactory, cobbled

them and heartily condemn it when it doesn’t. Agreement on this one

looks as likely, or as imminent, as William Hague’s first prime

ministerial broadcast.
