Hintze Gives Dave £1.5 Million

Back in February the Mail got very excited about the billionaire philanthropist Sir Michael Hintze ‘pulling the plug’ on Dave. Sebastian Shakespeare might wish to go back to his top Tory source, who told him:

“Michael is fed up with David Cameron and George Osborne and doesn’t see why he should prop up the party any longer. He is deeply upset with the party’s promotion of gay marriage; it grates with his Catholicism. And as a tax-cutting free marketeer, he’d hoped to see a more radical economic agenda.”

Hintze was so “deeply upset with the party” that he gave the Tories their largest single donation under David Cameron. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun and official figures will show on Thursday, at the time the Mail’s new diarist was writing that he was no longer supporting the Conservatives, the philanthropist was actually writing a cheque for a cool million and a half quid – effectively clearing the party’s debts. Shakespeare’s whole story was a figment of his imagination, not for the first time…

      Economic terrorist complains about an economic fascist not being sufficiently fiscally fascistic and is not terrorising the wage packets of hard working people enought. He says he will not fund the economic fascist as a consequence of his lack of fascism but the economic terrorist is in fact not just an economic terrorist but he is also a liar, as he really is funding the aforementioned economic fiscal fascist and is actually quite impressed by the economic terrorism the fascist is inflicting on families up and down the country.

      I think that just about sums it up.

        How many people will vote on May 2 for UKIP – probably the majority, but will it change a thing – NO. Just exchange one lot of EU-wankers, for another lot of gravy train passengers.

          Some years ago I seem to remember she and Jeffrey Archer (of Ford open prison) were great sponsors of the Kurds in north Iraq.

I have to say that I thought Harbin was well under communist rule by 1952. He stated to be of joint British-Australian nationality (odd as his mother is of Russian origin) and is of the “Roman Catholic” faith!!
    Not sure why he is gracing Britain with his marvellous presence, I am sure he would fit in better back down under.

    Giving money to the Conservative Party is not the same as giving money to Dave.

    It is not clear if this was a golden goodbye, or if the Mail were just publishing b/s. Clearing the parties debts is just fine: Labour could do the same if their benefactors had any integrity – a point that perhaps should be pushed given that parties dire financing.

    UKIP perhaps doing best overall on the party finances front ? That should endorse their credentials for being able to manage the economy.

    Implications for Lab / Con on the economy:

    Lab: Forget it.
    Con: Sod it – We’ll go to the IMF, and do the same again.

    Ed Miliband is a fuckwit! says:

    Right – at last. Britain finally seeing sense and starting to vote for/ back the Tories again. This is what is needed.

    Ed Militant is a dangerous Hunt and is surrounded by odious and deluded people, all controlled of course by the lethal unions, at least Blair kept them under control a bit.

    And labour but especially Milidick and Ballsup need to be defeated in 2015. They need to be sent packing. Ukip not the answer its personally great to me the tories lead again in polls we need Cameron back at least till end of 2015 so Milibollocks can be discarded and maybe Boris can take over?

    I warn you all now that me my family and friends WILL LEAVE THE COUNTRY AND GO TO THE NEAREST FOREIGN PORT if Milipsycho gets into downing street you wont see us ever again until Milicrap is defeated if he wins.

        You think Ed Militwat and Ballscrewyou are “democratic”? HA have heard it all now. I can almost guarantee you that within days of taking office Balls, Miliband and Harperson would be making free thought and expression of opinion a little bit obsolete. I have no doubt at all we would be at the behest of the unions for a start.

        Yep so I agree really. Vote tactically against Labour if you want to preserve democracy and stop Miliband and Len McCluskey running britain into ground.
