Correcting Michael Spencer

Guido has suggested previously that Michael Spencer has given the Conservative party £1m+. Tonight on Newsnight that was denied to Michael Crick. Technically he may be correct.

However Spencer’s Intercapital Private Group Ltd has actually given £326,500 at the last count. Guido understands that Lynton Crosby’s election campaign bill was also sent in the same direction – which was not unadjacent to £450,000. A few personal donations of around £80,000, a little help for Dave’s leadership campaign (including Spence’s Netjets card) and throw in the odd auction bid and, you know, it is nigh on near enough £1 million.

Guido would never expect Spence to be outgunned by his bitter moneybroking rival, the Labour backing Derek Tullet, who gave Labour a mere £400,000. So if Spence wants to get in touch and clarify the arithmetic, just email guido.fawkes@Order-Order.com.

Quote of the Day

In response to the news that Emily Thornberry described the Lib Dems as “like the Taliban” over their new revoke Article 50 Brexit policy, the former Lib Dem leader responded:

“Come on Emily, if we really were like a Middle East terrorist group, don’t you think Jeremy would’ve invited us to a conference fringe meeting before now?”
