Prime Minister David Cameron has said there will be a inquiry after secretly filmed footage showed the Conservative Party co-treasurer apparently offering access to the prime minister for a donation of £250,000 a year.Which doesn't really answer the real question. Was there any truth in Mr Cruddas' assertion that a quarter of a million quid gets you dinner in the PM's private apartment at 10 Downing Street? One of the people who knows the answer is the Prime Minister.
In a claim made to Sunday Times reporters, Peter Cruddas said £250,000 gave "premier league" access, including dinner with Mr Cameron and possibly the chance to influence government policy.
Mr Cameron said that it was right that Mr Cruddas had resigned and said he would make sure there was a Conservative Party inquiry.
There are times when I really hate all professional politicians.
