Abrahams Says Mendelsohn Knew, Mendelsohn Says He’s Lying

This is now becoming farcical. Like ferrets in a sack, things are becoming desperate.

The mendacious Mendelsohn is in a hole, there is no way out for him now. On LabourHome activists are calling for him to go. He was Gordon’s choice to raise funds for Labour…

The Party is Over…

Word is that the Harriet Harman party on Wednesday has been cancelled.

No word on ticket refunds…

Hat-tip : First Post

Good Week, Good Night

Guido is looking forward to going off to the panto with young Ms Fawkes tomorrow, which should be almost as much fun as UK politics.

It has been nice to see Vince Cable openly attacking the leader of another party, as opposed to attacking his own for the last few year(s). According to GMTV he has the ambition to dance on Strictly Come Dancing, expect to see Bruce Forsyth staggering with a stab wound soon…

It has also been great fun to see Yates (and Guido) get a second round of Labour funding sleaze to go after. This time with a bit of luck somebody will do time. It is fascinating to see it being blamed on Levy and Blair by Labour MPs. Labour MPs who only a few months ago were denying Levy and Blair were guilty of any wrong doing.

Enjoyed the new Telegraph blogs, one of which bemoanedwhere are the bloggers on Donorgate?, before elsewhere cutting and pasting Guido’s copy of that Wendy letter without attribution. You saw it here first, there later, so the answer to their question is, “ahead of the Telegraph”.

Mad Mel and others now talk darkly of anti-semitism. When Guido was kicking Prescott when he was down it was blamed on class snobbery, mocking Melissa Kite was misogyny – so what was Guido guilty of when he was slagging Blair? Sorry, in reality Guido is an equal opportunities piss taker.

Predictions for next week; more people will be discovered to have been “in the know”, therefore more people will have been part of a cover-up, we will re-focus on the fact that at £30 billion and rising the taxpayers are in for £1,000 each to Northern Rock as the property market goes south. Can it really get any worse for Brown next week? It will if Guido has a hand in it…

Poll : 70% of Labour Activists Think Harman Should Go

+++ BBC Confirms Wendy Letter Genuine ++++

BBC 15.48 “Mr Green said he had received a personal letter from Ms Alexander thanking him for his contribution.”

Exclusive : Wendy Alexander Thank You Note Proves She Knew

This letter should mean Wendy Alexander is toast. This personal note (dated October 5) to Paul Green shows that her telling the media that the first time she knew about the personal donation from Paul Green was 1 pm yesterday, is completely untrue.

Paul Green has also admitted that he gave two personal cheques of £950 which would have put him over the £1000 barrier and shown he was an impermissible donor.

Tom McCabe, her campaign manager, also said on Newsnight Scotland last night that David Whitton MSP was the treasurer for Wendy’s campaign. Yet it was David Whitton who put this statement out on Wednesday night:

“Paul Green was invited by one on the Campaign Team to make a donation as a longstanding Labour supporter. As required by the rules we made inquiries about permissibility and indicated to him that only a UK resident or UK registered company could donate. The registered donation was a UK corporate one. The allegation that a donation was accepted and returned is untrue. We acted in good faith at every stage. The Electoral Commission has been kept appraised.”

The Treasurer would have surely seen the personal cheques and Wendy could not have signed this without noticing the address was Jersey…

N.B. There is no wriggle room. She is on the hook completely;

4.3 It is the legal responsibility of a regulated donee, when receiving a donation to take all reasonable steps forthwith to satisfy themselves that the source of a donation is permissible within the relevant PPERA rules.

Friday Caption Contest (Watt, Abraham, Who? Edition)

Correction as Dictated by Labour HQ

Following on from yesterday’s story “Chris Lennie is now the registered treasurer with the Electoral Commission” according to a tad petulant Owain at the Labour party press office who has just called. Owain didn’t deny that, for a brief moment, under the law Gordon was the acting treasurer until the Electoral Commission was notified of the new treasurer.

Good luck Chris, be wary of lollipop ladies bearing gifts…
