Cameron : Brown is the dark side. [Sith Death Star graphic]
Would do a bit of self-flagellation if it helped but masochism is not Guido’s thing.
Guido retorted that they should fufil an outstanding Freedom of Information request. This evening out-of-the-blue at 5pm the Charity Commission’s Senior Manager for Compliance personally handed Guido a revealing two inch dossier. In an enclosed written request he asked Guido to provide all relevant information “by the close of business Thursday 25 January 2007″. All the bits of the puzzle have yet to be assembled.
Guido understands that tonight Newsnight’s Michael Crick intends to run an exposé of the Smith Institute, which is already under investigation by the charities regulator (for a second time) over allegations of political activities in breach of the Charities Act. The Charity Commission was due to issue a report shortly, they may soon have to revise their findings. The Sith are unavailable for comment.

Last week Dave told WebCameron users that
“If it can be proved that there are real benefits, medicinal benefits and scientific evidence for it, I would be relaxed about that… my decision would be to licence it if it could be proved to have benefits.”
“Given the many conclusive studies showing the benefits of medical cannabis, can you commit to changing government policy in 2009?”
Please be aware, if you have not already cast your vote, that the deadline for voting in the Channel 4 political awards of the year is today at midday. Greg Mulholland MP would be most appreciative if you would consider casting your vote for him in the Campaigning Politician of the Year award following his work on behalf of Mirza Tahir Hussain. It is possible to vote online using your ballot paper and it only takes a few moments.
Many thanks and best wishes
Office of Greg Mulholland MP

They have separate legal representation, are they now pointing the finger at each other?
The Labour campaign in Scotland is becoming mired in Downing Street sleaze with the SNP gaining strength from capitalising on their anti-corruption stance. The ineptitude of Blair in appointing McTernan, one of the key figures in Loans for Lordships, to run the Scottish campaign has become manifestly clear. The Scottish press is focused on the scandal, which has developed a Scottish sub-plot with the interviewing of Jack McConnell, the First Minister.
Jonathan Powell might be wise to keep a toothbrush in his top-pocket and not expect to always have a lie-in.
