LABOUR CAUGHT IN MORE SLEAZY DEALS WITH THEIR DONORS
Ministers were last night accused of drumming up trade for a multi-million-pound company owned by one of Labour's biggest donors. Caparo, the engineering firm founded by Lord Paul, the Labour peer who has non-domicile tax status, was invited on a UK delegation to Saudi Arabia headed by the trade minister Lord Davies of Abersoch earlier this month.
Lord Paul's son, Angad, the chief executive of Caparo, represented the company on the visit to Jeddah, and to an entirely new metropolis on the Red Sea called King Abdullah Economic City. At the same time, it emerged that Caparo has contracts with the Ministry of Defence for nearly half a million pounds.
The disclosures fuelled concerns that the company and the Paul family are benefiting from a close relationship with Labour. Lord Paul, who has donated £400,000 to the Labour Party and who is worth an estimated £500m, is a close friend of Gordon and Sarah Brown. Lord Paul gave £45,000 to Mr Brown's 2007 leadership campaign and is expected to donate a significant amount towards Labour's general election fund.
This is the administration that exploded onto the scene in 1997 promising to 'CLEAN UP POLITICS'. Their first move was to receive a bribe from BERNIE ECCLESTONE and they have continued along their SLEAZE RIDDEN PATH ever since. They now have become known as the PARTY OF SLEAZE AND THE QUICK 'BUCK'. DISGUSTING! KEIR HARDIE will be birlin' in HIS GRAVE.
