Murkier and Murkier activities in Ealing

Tom Watson reveals that on 15th June 2007 the company Tony Lit was then MD of donated £4,800 (just below the declarable limit) to the Labour Party. (see link)

Prague Tory reveals that this action is clearly against the assurance that Labour give on their website.
"The information you have provided will not be shared with any organisation or individual outside the Labour Party without your consent, nor transferred outside of the United Kingdom."
I suppose it makes the point that you cannot trust either the Tory Candidate - in his assurances of longstanding support of the Conservatives - or the Labour Party.

I must admit, however, that I find that £2.50 a year of my Musicians Union membership fee goes to the Labour Party. I have told Labour MPs that I am happy for this to continue if they stop selling peerages.

Tom also has a photo of Tony Lit with Tony Blair just before they both jumped ship.

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England. The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity. The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back. This is an issue that needs further work. In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.
