Cameron's Bankrupt Pal Quits

A Tory crony of David Cameron put in charge of a £60 billion quango was dramatically fired last night after it was revealed that he was declared bankrupt for not paying his taxes. Cameron was forced to act after a Mail on Sunday investigation into businessman Tony Caplin, who ran the Prime Minister’s family stockbroking firm and was Conservative Chief Operating Officer when Mr Cameron became party leader. The Prime Minister claimed he had no idea Caplin had been declared bankrupt.

Yet more sleaze from the Tory party.

DUP Looking For Converts To Unionism

The First Minister Peter Robinson has told members of the DUP they need to seek out converts to unionism.

He was speaking at the party's spring conference in Newcastle on Saturday.

Mr Robinson said demographic changes could not be wished away and ignoring them would be, what he termed, "constitutionally dangerous".

The DUP leader said the test of success for unionist parties would be in stopping to look for Lundies and starting to look for converts.

So watch out if you're a Catholic especially if you're a middle class one. After years of ignoring you or attacking you're religion Peter and his posse will hunt you down and try and convince you that the DUP is the party for you. Don't say you haven't been warned.

More Than 4 Million Scots Registered To Vote In Referendum

A record 4.1million Scots are now registered to vote as more people sign up to take part in the independence referendum. The figure is almost 60,000 more than in December 2012 and has been fuelled by 16 and 17-yearolds who are not eligible to take part in General or Scottish elections but can do so in the referendum. Around 92,000 out of a possible 120,000 young Scots have signed up. The figures have been compiled by the Electoral Commission's 15 Scottish electoral registration officers (EROs), following an annual canvas of voters between October 2013 and March 2014. The deadline to register to vote in the independence referendum is September 2, 2014. Andy O'Neill, head of the Scotland office at the Electoral Commission, said: 'The snapshot provided by the publication of the electoral registers gives an indication of the hard work already put in by electoral registration officers, but that hard work doesn't stop now. 'The EROs will continue to encourage as many people who are eligible to register to take action and get themselves registered before the September 2 deadline, in order to take part in the referendum. 'The commission will support EROs activities by launching a public awareness campaign in the summer, reminding people that the only way to vote at the referendum is to be on the register.'
