Lib Dem donor arrested !

The masters of political hypocrasy are being caught out again. As many people involved in the main two parties can testify the Lib Dems are not the Nice Party they try to portray themselves as.

I blogged about this donation before and said it was strange. Now it looks like the doner is an intresting man, and the Lib Dems keep being hit by scandal.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving party, IMHO.

The BBC are saying:

Quote Start
The Liberal Democrats have moved to distance themselves from their biggest donor following his arrest on fraud charges in Spain.

Scottish businessman Michael Brown is being extradited to the UK to face a number of charges including fraud, forgery and obtaining by deception.

Mr Brown donated more than £2m to the Lib Dems ahead of the last election.

But a party spokesman stressed there was "no connection" between the charges and Mr Brown's donations.
