Mirror Apologises to Michael Spencer Over Smear

The Mirror was the only newspaper with a hack who was in on the McBride / Draper emails (Kevin Maguire).  Today it has had to apologise to Tory treasurer Michael Spencer over claims made last week that he and his firm profiteered out of the 9/11 terror attack.

Mirror hack Graham Brough claimed last week that Spencer, the CEO of ICAP, had tried to exploit the deaths of rivals at Cantor Fitzgerald – where 658 rival money brokers lost the lives on 9/11.

We offer Mr Spencer and ICAP our sincere apologies for these errors and for any distress caused to him.  We have agreed to make a  substantial contribution to a charity of ICAP’s choice.

Tory donors are on the offensive and not taking Labour coordinated smears lying down, Ashcroft is taking legal action against the Indy over defamatory allegations.  Readers will understand why Guido is treading carefully regarding Lord Paul…

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
