Cameron Postpones Honours List over Fears of Tory Corruption

Mike has posted this story over at Vox Political, Cameron’s honours list cowardice: Too many corrupt Conservatives?, reporting on the article in today’s Independent that the Tories are postponing their honours list after the next election. Cameron fears that too many of them will be exposed as corrupt. Not to mention that many of the people ennobled by Cameron were honoured not for their contributions to society, but to Cameron personally. Mike’s article begins

David Cameron is planning to postpone the announcement of the next honours list until after the election, because he is worried that Conservatives he nominates might be embroiled in a scandal before polling day, according to The Independent.

According to that paper, “A Whitehall source said: ‘Cameron is petrified of someone on the list having done a Rifkind and finding that a week or two before the election a newspaper has done a number on some [Conservative] grandee.’

“It is thought that the recent cash-for-access sting involving Sir Malcolm Rifkind and Labour’s Jack Straw has influenced No 10’s thinking” regarding the release of the Dissolution Honours nominations.

Doesn’t this say everything you need to know about the Conservatives?

It’s at, if you want this little piece of Tory corruption examined.
