Do you agree with me that there is something pretty sickening about Labour protests over Lord Ashcroft’s tax affairs? It is tired, desperate stuff. After all, he has followed the law and kept faith with the promises he made. The Labour spokesmen like Lord Mandelson and Jack Straw pontificate, but they have plenty of donors with the same tax status as Lord Ashcroft. The fact is that now that Conservatives are more popular, Labour supporters don’t like it, so they suggest changing the voting system and try to put off Tory donors. Surely, they would be better off apologising for running our economy into the ground, damaging the interests of all age groups and coming up with some real plans to save the country from the mess they’ve made.
Me thinks they do protest too much.
