Tories Donated to Stringfellow

In his self-published memoirs, the former Tory Treasurer Lord Ashcroft reveals that he:
..made a point of bringing in the monthly expenses from one senior official which included a £400 bill from Stringfellow’s nightclub in central London. I am no prude and I hope the official and those with him greatly enjoyed the lap-dancing entertainment that was on offer that night; however, I did not feel this was an appropriate use of Party funds. How could I ask supporters to work hard up and down the country, or to make donations, if this was the sort of activity that the party’s income would be spent on? I will spare the official’s blushes by not identifying him, but suffice to say he no longer works at Conservative Central Office.

Guido thinks Ashcroft forgot that Stringy has long supported the Tories generously, so it is a mutually beneficial relationship. This kind of penny-pinching attitude is cheap.

Andrew Neil had Peter Stringfellow on his Daily Politics show during the Tory conference coverage, Stringy was too coy to say who he would back, saying only that he would back whomever becomes the leader.

The Campaign for a ‘Sir’ Peter Stringfellow petition to the Queen is still open. You too can sign and show your appreciation.

Incidentally, who was the Tory apparatchik enjoying the company of the girls on expenses? Not Sheridan surely..?

Stay Kalm

Rule 1 of political campaigning: Don’t piss off the money. Basher has apparently irked Stanley Kalms so much that the man from Dixons is muttering darkly. Basher might not be getting helicoptored around the constituency hustings at this rate… or even going on the hustings.

“You really do love your NHS. But what I don’t understand is if it’s so good why are you always trying to fix it?”
