Sir Craig Oliver was the Communications Director for former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, who has recently written a book about their failed attempt to win the referendum. Channel four news anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy compared his knighthood to those that have gone before, including Sir Winston Churchill, Francis Drake and Walter Raleigh and ask how his Knighthood compared to his – a reward for failure? It’s nice to see someone squirm!!
Oh dear – has the Tory party been “creative” with their accounting? Maybe they asked Google to fill out their expenses?
Channel 4 news journalist Michael Crick obtained hundreds of Conservative party receipts which where accumulated during local by-elections – but do not appear to have been officially registered, as is required by law, to ensure political parties do not spend more than a legal limit which is set at £100,000.
The phrase “electoral corruption” is used in Michael Crick’s investigation into undeclared party expenditure and the police may have to be called in to investigate!
You would think that after Conservative leader David Cameron appointed Sir Eric Pickles as his anti-corruption tsar to “stamp out corruption and restore public confidence” in politicians, the Tory party would be a bit more careful about how they do their own accounting?
As Michael Crick said in his investigation- did the Conservative Party show “contempt for the law”?
Well, we go to the polls on the 7th May and it seems like the only thing that is sure – is that noone is sure how the vote will turn out.
