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. If only, say, there were a film of the whole thing…

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
