Cruddas Sues Sunday Times For Libel

Disgraced former Tory party treasurer Peter Cruddas is suing the Sunday Times for libel over their secret camera cash-for-access sting. Cruddas is seeking unlimited damages from the paper and has also applied for an injunction to prevent them from mentioning the allegations again in the future.

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
