Q. Lord Ashcroft accepted a peerage from the Tories and tells them he was a UK resident; he spent £5 million in Labour marginal seats in 2005 and maybe as much in 2010. We now know he has been a non-dom for a decade yet he remains Deputy Chairman of Tory Party who have refused to sack him; refused to repay his money and refused to take his peerage away. He then, for good measure, pays for the private Tory polling through a company in Belize thus avoiding VAT. Didn't Cameron say again and again he would clear up the sleaze in his own party. Why hasn't he sacked him?
