Lakshmi Mittal Bungs Labour £2m

Hmmm, tricky one this, Mr Lakshmi’s lawyers (Schillings, what a great name for lawyers) threatened to sue anyone who suggests anything dubious or refers to a previous incident (such as the timing of the last bung of a mere £125,000 and Tony Blair coincidentally writing a letter for him, not because of the money, because err, oh I forget what bullshit Tony made up). On the other hand it would be funny to see a billionaire’s lawyers suing an anonymous blogger who claims to live in the cellars of parliament / be 400 years dead (but with broadband).

He must get a Lordship for this surely? Lord Drayson’s peerage set him back only £600,000. Drayson is now a member of the government despite his little tax dodge becoming public knowledge. But Lord Lakshmi must pay UK taxes on his billions, otherwise Labour wouldn’t take his donation, would they?

Which reminds Guido that he has not mentioned his ongoing Campaign for a Sir Peter Stringfellow for some time. Its a disgrace that must be righted in this year’s New Year’s Honours List, the Tories should nominate their stalwart supporter for a gong.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
