Tory donations

The Tories in Westminster get some interesting donations, indicating that the class divide is alive and well in British politics:

£325 - Champagne (and postage stamps!)

£4,000 - "Villa"

£3,000 - "Boat trip"

£1,200 - "table gifts"

Did you miss the clip of Barbara Follett winning Stevenage? Villa and Blair is a pair in a word association game. This blog is a joke.

Personally I only ever touch Veuve Cliquot. Can't stand the cheaper stuff.

Yeah, Mr Foie Gras, you take it from Prague Fascist.

Actually one redeeming feature of the Brown era is that the toffs appear out of favour in New Labour.

V good, Luke. Beer's often the cheapest drink out here which suits my straitened circumstances.

"Table gifts"?? Who goes around giving a gift of a table, I ask you?

But for analysis of some really rotten-to-the-core expenses claims, check out the following:
Political seats for sale?

What do you think, Luke. Can you afford a seat in the House?

Babs Follet has had an intersting past. She was born in Jamacia and grew up in Ethiopia where In 1957, at a banquet given by the Emperor for Yugoslavia's President Tito, her father, Vernon Hubbard, fell into a drinks trolley during the Royal toast. This was deemed an insult to His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, King of Kings of Ethiopia and Elect of God and Hubbard was asked to leave the country. Married four times as well. As you can se a perfect New Labour background
