The BBC reports that David Cameron has criticised Peter Cruddas, the party's former treasurer, for boasting that a big enough donation could lead to high-level access.
The PM pledged a "party inquiry" into the claims that £250,000 would get donors a private dinner with him.
Ahem, may I draw Mr Cameron's attention to my earlier article today:
".. if you go to the Tory Party's own website you will see that they openly offer dinner with Cameron, and others, in exchange for monetary gifts eg:
The Leader's Group
Annual membership: £50,000 Chairman: Howard Leigh
The Leader’s Group is the premier supporter Group of the Conservative Party. Members are invited to join David Cameron and other senior figures from the Conservative Party at dinners, post-PMQ lunches, drinks receptions, election result events and important campaign launches.
The only difference being that the site does not ask for the £200K that Cruddas was allegedly soliciting."
