Lib Dem donor on the run
Michael Brown is in the news again. He is the businessman who famously gave the Liberal Democrats £2.4 million in possible breach of party funding laws (see Is this the end of the Liberal Democrats? and Are the Lib Dems facing their final point?) and also dubbed the party as "muppets" for getting rid of Charles Kennedy. Now it appears he has skipped bail while awaiting trial for fraud and money laundering. (Sky News: Police Issue Arrest Warrant For Lib Dem Donor) I guess the Lib Dems won't be taking any donations from him for the time being!
