Will Hague Ask Prescott About His Foreign Backers?

Last week Prescott sent out this press release

John Prescott MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, today called on David Cameron to publish details of all Conservative Party loans.

John Prescott MP said: “Following Labour’s decision in the interests of transparency to publish the full list of names and amounts of all the loans received, we call on David Cameron to match his words on openness with actions by publishing details of all the Tories’ loans.

Well perhaps Prescott should first tell us who financed the John Prescott Campaign Research Trust in the 1990s?

According to David Osler, Harry Sophoclides, a Greek-Cypriot millionaire was one backer of the secret trust. Guido, and perhaps William Hague, want to know who else made anonymous donations to the trust? Did they too receive honours when Prescott became Deputy PM? (Besides the parliamentary pass accreditation he organised for Mr Sophoclides’ lobbyist son.)

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
