And someone in Labour waded in with some police bollocks at the right moment.

As if this couldn't have waited till Sir Alex Allen's report being published.

Hunt will have to go after the Olympics, won't he?

Don't see why he has to. Nothing has been 'proved', and the public reaction seems to be 'meh'.

Quite an effective page of opinions about the Warsi affair in comparison to Hunt, here:

Labour urges wider standards inquiry into Baroness Warsi

Labour has asked David Cameron's adviser on the ministerial code to widen his investigation into Tory co-chairman Baroness Warsi.


Quote:
Labour MP Michael Dugher has written to Sir Alex, asking him to also consider claims made in The Sunday Telegraph that Lady Warsi may have paid for potential business clients to attend a lunch with the prime minister.

She paid for them to attend? Paid who?

From the Torygraph

Quote:
She personally paid for potential customers, one of whom was in negotiations over a deal with her firm, to attend a Conservative Party lunch with the Prime Minister last month.


Quote:
Lady Warsi paid a total of £5,000 for two tables at the event. Guests on one table included her parents, sisters, and others involved in the family’s Dewsbury-based bed manufacturing business.
She “hosted” another table, made up of clients and staff from “Rupert’s Recipes”, although she sat on the VIP table.


Quote:
However the disclosure that she apparently used a political function to promote her business appears to breach clause one of the Ministerial Code, which states: “Ministers must ensure that no conflict arises, or appears to arise, between their public duties and their private interests.”


Quote:
A Conservative Party spokesman said of the Savoy reception: “This was a party event organised by the Conservative Friends of Pakistan to reach out to potential supporters within the British Pakistani community.



Looks like it was one of those £5000-a-plate fundraiser deals, and she was sweetening a customer. Dodgy, possibly against the Ministerial Code, but not illegal afaik.

With all these sidelines, It's amazing that she finds time for the job she was elected to do. :?

She wasn't elected....by anyone .
That's why Cameron had to appoint her as a peer to get her in the cabinet..

I think that was a gag.

I'm reasonably relaxed about some business partner travelling with her. He's presumably Pakistani, and he won't be angling for an invasion of Iran, like Foxy's mates.

So it's now official: the government consider her as innocent as Jeremy Hunt. :?

Now she's been cleared does that mean we will now be seeing more of her on Newsnight when Chloe Smith is not available?

Has she been cleared? This seems to refer to a single trip, which was never being seriously touted as a misdemeanour anyway. There's still the matter of falsely claiming expenses and other trips. Perhaps the government hope that people will think she's been cleared of everything and they can now quietly drop it.

I'm still confused about her case.

Seeing I hate the people who hate her more, I don't mind if she gets off really.

She'll surely be reshuffled away anyhow. That UKIP/BNP blunder was priceless.

btw, isn't it nice to see there's none of that Blair/Brown briefing against each other lark going on now?
