Why did the BBC pull an edition of its Panorama programme about the financial affairs of Tory backer Lord Ashcroft just hours before it was due for broadcast?
A statement from the beeb didn’t reveal too much.
Perhaps moneybags Ashcroft is seeing a return on all the millions he’s pumped into the CONservative party by getting them to pressurise the BBC to drop the programme…or are the BBC afraid of being threatened with a law suit?
Lord Ashcroft’s dodgy dealings has seen him labelled as someone who has ‘subjugated a nation’, a claim from the Prime Minister of Belize himself. While the CONservatives have been more concerned with his “non-dom” tax status.
Belizeans take to the streets to protest against Lord Michael Ashcroft’s Belize Bank Ltd. over $20M diverted from the public treasury to pay off a private loan that had been secretly guaranteed by Belize’s former prime minister.
Colonialism never really went away, it was replaced by the myth of “free trade” and “market forces”.
