Labour's standards haven't just lowered, some of them have disappeared.
The Standard blog has either gone or is being removed to a new server after it was outed as a Labour Party blog and hosted by Labour in its servers last week after initially claiming to be independant. Bill English has subsequently questioned Labour's knowledge of the blog.
