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.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
