The correlation between making large donations to the Labour Party and receiving an honour is extraordinary. Statistical analysis shows that 58.54% of all donors giving more than £50,000 to the Labour Party receive an honour. This compares to just 0.035% of non-donors. Large Labour Party donors are 1,657 times more likely to receive an honour than a non-donor and 6,969 times more likely to receive a peerage. It is almost impossible to avoid the conclusion that the Labour Party has been selling honours, including places in the House of Lords. An analysis of all donations over £50,000 since 2001 reveals that Honour certainly has its price. We publish below the average amount donated by the recipients of various honours – an “Honours Price List”. Those receiving a Peerage have given £1.07 million on average, and a Knighthood £747,000…

What do m’learned friends think?
Bought a new Citroen people carrier* this morning to transport the expanded brood around in. Five years ago, a bachelor Guido was zooming around in a Lotus sports car with his stereo blasting, now he drives a lemon with wailing in stereo. C’est la vie…
*We’re in the South of France for the summer.
One of Guido’s corresponding co-conspirators did a search of the PDF file for swear words:
There are, unsurprisingly, 135 references to the word “fuck”, more, infact than in Dr. Dre’s seminal gangsta rap album “The Chronic”.
There are also 38 uses of the word “shit”, 5 “Hunts”, 2 “bitches”, 13 “wankers” as well as 1 “collective wank”, 29 “dicks” but only one obvious “penis”.
Has Campbell got a form of Tourettes to add to his depressive tendencies?

In the U.S. lobbyists have to register and publicly declare their clients. We need a similar system that also forces them to declare any payments to lawmakers.
