Daily Star Sunday Column Now Online Tories Using Olympics to Raise Party Cash

If you had picked up your Daily Star Sunday yesterday you would be in the know about talk of another reshuffle next year, the Sage of Twickenham downgrading his predictions and the failure of parliamentary reform.

Last Sunday we suggested the reshuffling of LibDems out of the Ministry of Defence and Foreign Office could presage military action in Iran. Today, a week later, the Mail on Sunday catches up and says the same. Keep up!

Guido’s favourite story this week was how the Tories are blatantly fundraising on the back of the Olympic Games:

At a £1,000-a-head fundraising dinner on Thursday, an Olympic torch “signed by Seb Coe, David Cameron and will be signed by Boris” was auctioned for over £30,000. No wonder the Prime Minister called them “the Golden Games”.

Quote of the Day

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
