And in Other Sleaze News Today...

Mr. Heald: To ask the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission if the Electoral Commission will re-commence its investigation into the admissibility of 5th Avenue Partners Ltd.'s donations following the conviction of Mr.
Michael Brown.
Peter Viggers: The Commission informs me that it continues to liaise with the City of London Police, whose investigation into the activities and status of 5th Avenue Partners Ltd. is ongoing, and it will consider carefully any information that has a bearing on the permissibility of donations made by the company.

That was the text of a PQ answered earlier this week, which I must apologise for missing at the time. Very uncharcteristic of me I am sure you will agree. Many sharp intakes of breath in LibDem HQ in Cowley Street one suspects.

"Continues to liaise with the City Police" .... pah! What about the High Court ruling they said they were going to decide on in a "few weeks" ...... 3 months ago?

Peter Viggers has launched a campaign to save Haslar hospital - a very worthy campaign.

Just thought I'd get that one in; the hospital really should be saved.
