Cameron faces fresh New Year honours row as it emerges FOUR Tory donors have been given gongs
David Cameron faced an honours row today after it emerged at least four Conservative Party donors were given awards in the New Years list.
Paul Ruddock - whose firm Lansdowne Partners made £100million during the credit crunch by betting on the price of Northern Rock shares plunging - has been awarded a knighthood.
Fellow Tory donors James Wates, former Aston Villa chairman Doug Ellis and investment banker James Lupton were all also given honours.
Positive comments thus far:
Nothing like a good old slice of Tory sleaze to start the New Year. Don't forget folks, we're all in this together.....

Once again Cameron proves himself the master PR man. Virtually every policy he espoused during the election has either been ditched or trimmed, from the NHS to immigration, City and banking reform to deficit reduction. Yet the public love him for a policy he never announced, picking a fight with Europe. Ho hum, we shall just have to wait a little longer for the public to suss this particular fraud out.

Cameron you are meant to be sorting out parliamentary corruption not adding to it.
