Des Smith, a secondary headteacher who was also a council member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) which was the camouflage operation under which peerages were doled out to the Labour party’s secret lenders.
The president of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust is, of course, Lord Levy.
That perp walk is getting nearer…
Like Blair’s people’s peers they would be nominated by the conservative activists to be officially put forward by the Conservative party leader to the PM for a gong. No cash need change hands.
Am wondering just what Guido should video and send to firstname.lastname@example.org as his suggestion for their next Party Political Broadcast. (You can text your videophone message to 07725 822460 as well.)
All you have to do is record a 30 second video clip answering the question: ‘How would you improve your local environment? The “prize” is to appear on the BBC in the Tory Party Political Broadcast. Hmm, Guido will suggest making all the local government campaign leaflets from recycled materials. Recycle a few LibDem policies on decentralisation here, a few Labour policies on schools there – they really will bio-degrade better for the environment.
Bet you a peerage Lord Levy is tuned to Radio 4 on Saturday at 4.30pm.

Ed Balls stretches credulity by claiming he isn’t ambitious…
“I would love to be part of Ed’s Labour government but what I do next for me is not an all-consuming passion. I’m more bothered, in a personal sense, about getting to grade 8 piano by the time I’m 50.”
