A Shakespearian farce

CPS under pressure

Who will get the part of Brutus?

The Sunday Telegraph has a full script to this farce.

The report refers to the need for “creating a reason to give” money to the party and stresses the importance of the Prime Minister having “private meetings” with substantial donors. It also tells of the need to “flatter” the desire of donors to offer policy advice.

Entitled Post Election Strategy for High Value Donors, it was written after Mr Blair swept to power on the back of his party’s relentless criticism of Tory sleaze. Within months, the Prime Minister was boasting that his Government would be “purer than pure”.

“New Labour is corrupt to the core. To ‘flatter’ donors is obscene and to give them the false impression they could influence policy is utterly objectionable.” – Elfyn Llwyd, the Plaid Cymru leader.

Things could only get better?
