Cable Finally Declares £6,000 Clegg Plot Poll Gift

Four days after the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards announced she would be launching an inquiry into Vince Cable’s failure to declare the Lord Oakeshott poll in his constituency as a gift, this entry appears in the Business Secretary’s Register of Interests:

Name of donor: Lord Oakeshott
Address of donor: private
Amount of donation or nature and value if donation in kind: conducting a local opinion poll, value £6,000
Donor status: individual

Tessa Munt has still failed to declare the poll in her constituency. Oops.

    If a survey is carried out in a particular constituency without the agreement of the sitting MP it would not be a donation. We may therefore conclude that Vince Cable knew in advance about the survey and approved it.

    So much for his surprise about what Oakeshott was up to.

        To make sure they don’t lose their £500 deposit?

        I’d like to think it “sends a message” to the Tories, but I don’t think Cameron pays the slightest bit of attention to anything or anyone, unless they’re waving £250K under his nose.

          Oh, I think it does – hence the plethora of Tory bigwig visitors to the recent bye-election. UKIP really had them doing nasties in the knickers. And just to remind, the Tories lost 50% of their voter base that day.

      How are we supposed to respond to that?

      Do we point out that last week they were convinced that a budget cuts were necessary but that this week they believe more handouts is the answer?

      Or do we just ignore them as usual?

    Beware of polls, masquerading as gifts. They might conceal some form of Trojan horse-s**t, intended to curry favour.

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?
