A Conservative MP has demanded an explanation from the BBC for its “inexcusable” lack of coverage of the Fogel murders a fortnight ago and condemned the broadcaster for “exceptionally biased reporting” — and even antisemitism.
The co-treasurer of the Conservative Party took up his seat as Lord Fink today.
The man described as "the Godfather" of the hedge fund industry, Lord Fink runs hedge fund International Standard Asset Management and was the chief executive of the MAN Group. He has donated more than donated £1.9 million to his party in the last eight years.
David Cameron has promised that while he is in office, Britain has “a Prime Minister whose belief in Israel is indestructible”.
Mr Cameron told guests at the annual Conservative Friends of Israel business lunch in London on Monday that “the ties between this party and Israel are unbreakable,” and praised Israel for its dynamic enterprise, community spirit, and for instilling national pride in its youth.
Speech by the David Cameron at the Conservative Friends of Israel business lunch, December 13
I woke up at about 10 in the morning on May 7th and thought ‘What the hell am I going to do now!”
But I would like to think that the decisions I made with others that morning to do the big and the bold and the brave thing and to reach out to form the first coalition government this country had seen in 65 years was right for our party and right for our country and we are seeing the dividends today.
When the Coalition government came to power in May it faced an unprecedented budget deficit of over more than £150 billion, at a time when Britain seemed to be on the verge of sinking back into recession.
Two of the men closest to Prime Minister David Cameron have been tipped to be given peerages in a list of as many as 50 new working peers to be announced by Downing Street.
Andrew Feldman, Mr Cameron’s chief fund raiser and now joint chairman of the Tory Party, and Stanley Fink, a joint party treasurer, have been named among a large group who will augment the ranks of the House of Lords.
