Sky exclusive: Tony Lit, Tony Blair and the £50,000 cheque

Sky is just about to break a story about Tony Lit being photographed giving a £50,000 £4,800 cheque to Tony Blair at a Labour fundraiser. Let’s hope this story is more accurate than the PA’s poll reporting attempts earlier this evening…

UPDATE: The Telegraph has more about Tony Lit and the donation.

UPDATE 2: The party’s official reaction is up on the Ealing Southall by-election site.

    Coming home from Southall tonight I purchased The Observer and this story is there as well.

  • So there are two candidates in this by-election who support neocon warmonger Tony Blair, and one with integrity: Nigel Bakhai – who, let us remember, can second last time, ahead of the Tory, who came third (although at least that one was a Conservative).

  • In the Observer story
    http://observer.guardian.co.uk/politics/story/0,,2126716,00.html
    a Tory spokesman claimed that “the Lits had been told the fund-raising event was organised by Labour MP Keith Vaz, and that the money would be going to his charity, Starline, which helps disadvantaged children.”

    However, Tom Watson has published a copy of the cheque in his blog:

    – Everybody can see, that the cheque is addressed to Labour Party.

  • I like to think I’m a pretty strong supporter of the Lib Dems, but in all the years I’ve been an activist, I don’t think I’ve given £4,800 in total…..

    And that is to the party I support….. Let alone to one I don’t.

    Even accepting that Lit does truly support the Tories as he claims, and is not just a cynical opportunist, then what would be the purpose of the donation to Labour funds…..?

    Surely Sunrise Radio didn’t expect that their £5K (+£4K) would buy them some advantageous treatment from the Govt did they? That would be wrong wouldn’t it?

  • I was so embarassed to see Sky News yesterday, never in a millon years would you give £4,800 to your opposition, I dont think the Lit’s know what side of the fence they are on

  • Shame on David Cameron, and shame on Tony Lit who is obviously a Labour supporter. Vote Lib Dems and give them a chance. (Hee Hee Hee)

  • Amazingly crass of the Lits, and even worse tyhey bid in the Labour auction and are due to pay £4,000 more for which they get to go support the Hilary Clinton Democrat campaign!! So how will Tony Lit explain that?

    I have a theory that it was not the real Tony Lit at the Labour Party fundraiser but was someone who had stolen his DNA (code 1234) and used it to impersonate him.

    I am sure that Conservative Home could confirm this.
