In June 1993, the then Tory chair Norman Fowler told the Commons :
“I have set out the position of Mr. Asil Nadir fully and clearly. Let me make this clear : we will return the money if it was stolen.”
They probably won’t though – at least if the Tories follow their Lib Dem partners. Clegg has refused to repay the £2.4 million donation from fraudster and conman Michael Brown – which came exclusively from stolen funds.
The £440,000 of donations made by Nadir would be worth £860,000 today. There are millions of stolen funds sitting in the bank accounts of the two coalition parties.
It’s time they paid it back…
