Its not a real offer of a peerage, only a Miraj

I am no flag waver over Cameron or the Tories, but there was a very fishy and slippery article in the Sunday Times by Ali Miraj.

Others have fisked it soundly, but to me what stood out on Sunday as I read it was the beginning of each paragraph...

I am Ali Miraj...I had hoped...I was elected...I managed...I have fought...I backed...Cameron asked me...The question...But...First...My article...Desperate...So what...No “demand"...What is...I myself.

This guy does not nail the accusation but appears to try and give the impression he has. Disingenuous double talk.

I expect Gordon Brown to be asking him to join his "Government of all the Troughers" any day now.

Regarding your recent article on legalising drugs, you're not the only one!

See today's FT.

I am glad to hear it.

I still think we need to be careful of taxation, especially in the early stages and to expect the EU to do it is, frankly, laughable and reveals the writer as a Statist.
