UPDATE : More Tory Brands

Guido missed a couple of brands backing Basher Davis. Secretive slush fund, the Midlands Industrial Council has chipped in a few quid in the past, as has Michael Spencer’s Intercapital. The biggest money broker in the City has a private subsidiary free of corporate governance issues and pesky shareholders which owns a bookmakers, entertains a lot and was used to back Basher during the general election. Michael Spencer is well known in the City (he is worth half-a-billion) for his lavish parties and his desire for a knighthood. Surely a frolicking FTSE-100 Chairman should get a gong? He strangely hasn’t got one, even though he has lavished a fortune on the Tories, including paying Lynton Crosby’s £250,000 fee.

Hasn’t got a gong yet.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
