Tony Lit

I've been away for a few days so I'm a little late to this. Tony Lit paying £5k or so for a table at a Labour Party fundraiser.

I tend to differentiate between an individual supporting a party financially out of conviction and a businessman paying the necessary political rent to the party in power.

That the latter situation even exists is the sadness in this story.

This is the first time I've heard of this Tony Lit character. I visited the link supplied, and I don't like the look of this 'businessman'. But that's just my gut instinct, having known a few businessmen who were crooks. He's too clean and too smartly presented. Mark my words he is hiding something quite serious.

Anyway, I tried to find out who he is, and found this:

Tim adds: That is a very old story. He's registered to vote under his full, Sikh (?) name, as he has to be.

Apparently:

'there is no Tony Lit registered to vote in either Chiswick or Richmond (and certainly not in Ealing or Southall)' (he claims to live in Chiswick)

'The fact that “Tony Lit”’s six company directorships are not only held at three different addresses but in three different names does not add clarity'

Thanks Tim for that info but I still don't like the look of him. Also "Lit" doesn't appear under any Jatt clan names:

If any group has made rent-seeking a religion and bedazzlement by celeb an addiction, it is New Labour.

This is why the State should "step away from the vehicle" in so many areas of our lives.

"I tend to differentiate between an individual supporting a party financially out of conviction and a businessman paying the necessary political rent to the party in power." A fine use of the old rapier there, Mr W.
