What a tool

The Telegraph

Some people are blessed with a special kind of stupid.

The Conservative Party’s co-treasurer has resigned after claims he had offered access to David Cameron for up to £250,000.

Peter Cruddas, who runs an online trading company, allegedly told potential donors that gifts of more than £200,000 would get them into the party’s “premier league.”

This would be enough to get donors invitations to dinners with the Prime Minister and George Osborne, the Chancellor, it was alleged. Mr Cruddas was apparently filmed making the offer to undercover reporters.

He was filmed apparently telling reporters posing as businessmen that making a large donation would be “awesome for your business” and that “things will open up for you”.

    So what’s the problem. Politicians “sell” their political power for votes, so what’s the difference between that and selling their political power for cash?

    I wonder what you get for your 250,000 quid?
    Would it be better than a High Commissioner’s post in Monaco?
