Thanks to all those who have wished me a happy birthday either here or on Facebook. I have spent it at my parents near Saffron Walden, where there is no internet access, hence the lack of blogging today.
I have, however, been amused to read all the comments about my lack of posting on Sunrise Radio's £4800 donation to Labour. For the record, on last night's paper review on News 24 I not only chose that as one of my topics to talk about, I also talked about the two bad polls for the Conservatives. I also praised two LibDem MPs (see below). So please don't let anyone accuse me of trying to hide away from subjects which are difficult for the Tories.
On the Tony Lit front, I doubt whether the donation has lost him a single vote. Indeed, the blanket media coverage has raised his profile enormously - his picture is everywhere in today's papers. You could easily argue that the coverage is a boost. Personally, I cannot imagine why any Conservative would want to attend a Labour Party event, but we should remember it was an Asian business 'do', and a media organisation like Sunrise presumably has good reason to be impartial in its political relations.
I did find it interesting to note, though, that tables cost £4,800 - just £200 below the declaration limit. Another case of Labour operating at the margins.
UPDATE: Sense from Dizzy.
