Where was Tony Lit last month? Jul 14

Tony Lit is the Conservatives’ candidate in the Ealing Southall by-election. And yet he apparently made a donation to the Labour party pretty recently.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Lit was at a political fundraising dinner last month. Nothing unusual about that, you say, although as he’s only been a Tory member for a couple of weeks, it may come as a surprise. What may come as more of a surprise – especially, I imagine, to the Tories pounding the pavements for him – is that it was a Labour party fundraiser.

Tony Lit, a wealthy radio station boss parachuted in to fight the seat by Mr Cameron, paid for a table at a Labour fundraising dinner at which he was pictured next to a smiling Tony Blair days before his departure as prime minister.

It may be unfair to mention just now, but Nigel Bakhai was the Liberal Democrats’ candidate in the 2005 General Election, and is challenging Labour in the same seat – and for the same party – this coming Thursday.

    Perhaps Tony Lit’s pin number is 1234 and someone stole his credit card?
