Blunkett faces new exam claims

This has to do with the allegations that David Blunkett put pressure on civil servants and was behind the sacking of an employee who alerted the Observer that Blunkett had intevened in the interests of his son whose grades stood to be at risk in the wake of the 1998 exam grading fiasco.

Now I wouldn't want to prejudge these allegations without more information, but I think any Blunkett defenders might want to rule out the "no New Labour minister - and especially not David Blunkett - would ever dream of bullying civil servants to further their own personal and political gain", line of defence.
