    Lord Ashcroft attacks Cameron.

    Revenge! Drugs, debauchery and the book that lays Dave bare: How PM's snub to billionaire who funded the Tories for years sparked the most explosive political book of the decade

    Today The Daily Mail lifts the lid on the extraordinary feud between David Cameron and a billionaire Tory donor that has triggered the most explosive political biography of the decade.

    In the dynamite book, former party treasurer Lord Ashcroft makes allegations of drug taking and debauchery by a young Mr Cameron.

    The book also claims the Conservative leader was aware as early as 2009 that Lord Ashcroft was a controversial non dom who did not pay UK tax on his overseas earnings.


    Get the full story from The online Daily Mail HERE




    This brings up two points that I wonder about:

    1). Is this report by the Daily Mail going against it's usual political policy of supporting Cameron and The Tory Party ?

    2). After Ashcroft's attack, I guess this means that in the Tory party, who needs enemies when your friends can be so dangerous ?

    What do you think about this book and do you think it will damage David Cameron ?

    Of course you don't have any right-wing or left wing beliefs, do you ?

    You only believe in the destructive stance of the anarchists Suspect

    OR.... do you actually believe in ANYTHING ?

    It seems that it is not a good thing to do to make enemies in the Tory party.

    Cameron will get a hard time if this Lord Ashcroft stops financing the Tories.

    This billionaire business-man and writer is highlighted in the Google search HERE

    If he stops giving money to the Tories they might see a few more following his lead.

    The main problem with the money-men like Ashcroft is the tenet that is applied of "quid-pro-quo".

    When such very rich individuals give money to a political party they MUST want something in return.

    Yes my dear; dead right.

    This tenet has been the basis for graft and corruption right around the world.

    Although I don't think that Britain is as bad as say America, or India, or the far east in this respect, I don't think we get to know the half of it here.
