Pah, that's nothing. Here's some PROPER Tory sleaze:


In late 1997 Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One boss, gave £1m to Labour and in return motor racing was exempted from a ban on tobacco advertising. Ecclestone's donation was returned in 1998 following public criticism of the deal.

The Hinduja brothers, whilst on bail under corruption charges in India, were finally given British passports after donating more than £1m to the Millenium Dome project and the intervention of Labour minister Peter Mandelson.

In 2001 Mr Blair wrote to the Romanian Prime Minister to support Lakshmi Mittal's bid to buy their state-owned steel firm. In return Mittal donated £125,000 to the Labour party's 2001 election campaign, and has in total given £2m to the party.

In March 2006, several men nominated for life peerages by Tony Blair were rejected by the House of Lords Appointments Commission. It was later revealed they had loaned large amounts of money to the governing Labour Party, at the suggestion of Labour fundraiser Lord Levy. Levy was arrested and Blair became the first person to be interviewed by police at 10 Downing Street.

Of seven British donors who have given more than a £1m to Labour while Blair was Prime Minister, six have received honours. They include Lord Drayson, who gave £1.1m and was given a job as a Defence minister, and Lord Sainsbury of Turville, who has given Labour £16m and who became Science minister.

Sir Alistair Graham, chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, called for a tougher standards regime and has been critical of Mr Blair for failing to implement a series of recommendations to combat sleaze.

Here we go again with Tory sleaze.

Here we go again with your partisan misdirect.

You still don't get it do you?

They are the opposite cheeks of the same feltching arse.

Your new year's resolution is to refrain from religiously adding the word Tory to your student style rhetoric and focus your tribalism to all politicians.
