How Much is that Gong in the Window?

Alan B’stard’s return as a Labour MP and the Downing Street adviser on “Prices for Peerages” is of course fiction, in reality that job is done by Ruth Turner in the PM’s office. (Guido supects that Shaun Woodward won’t be in the front row of the B’stard play’s first night. )

Labour has released the names of the “lenders” after saying only yesterday that they could not possibly break their confidences.

Funding Facts:

  • 80% of Labour’s election funding came from the covert Loans for Lordship program.
  • Every donor who has given the party more than £1 million has been given a knighthood or a peerage.
  • Three quarters of those individuals who have given more than £50,000 to the Labour Party since 2001 have received an honour.

Guido hears mutterings that Sir Gulan Noon is thinking of calling in his loan – he’s that pissed off about it.

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
