Cable and Munt Face Inquiry Over Clegg Plot Polls

A spokesperson for the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner has confirmed that they have launched an investigation into whether Vince Cable broke Commons rules by failing to declare the Oakeshott poll in his constituency.

      Boko Haram meets Hamas. Spiffing do, what. They won’t need goal-line technology as much as a wholesale undertaker. They could share schoolgirl cheer-leaders, if there are any left, that is.
