The link to the Geraldine Dreadful article doesn't work.

Sad to see that this blog is faithfully toeing the party line on Ashcroft - i.e ignoring the problem in the hope that it will go away and that voters won't have noticed. We have, just as we have been sickened by the Unite story. Unpleasant and difficult though this topic may be, it's only when the Conservatives and Labour have the guts to tackle these problems head on that there is a chance that ordinary people will start to regain trust in them. Full marks, by the way, to Barry Legg for his comments yesterday (not that you would know that he had said anything from this blog).

For once I find myself (strangely) in agreement with Tim Montgomerie on the Barclay Brothers using the Telegraph as a crude instrument of personal harassment. What a bizarre thing - that headline made me think they knew about a war somewhere that nobody else was reporting. On a close reading the story turned out to be the sort of fluff that might (just) make a social diary gossip section, if the Features Editor was utterly unconcerned about facts.

Even stranger, it appeared, er, nowhere at all on the front page of the Torygraph website yesterday.

Isn't this utterly crass and obvious "rendering as a tool" of a once great national newspaper yet further proof that national media outlets cannot be left to rich and powerful individuals without an accompanying health warning?
