Big Tone led from the front again today at PMQs. (I've transcribed this off the Daily Politics video doodah.)
Elfyn Llwyd (Plaid Cymru): Would the prime minister offer a credible response to the following question? Why was it when his fundraiser-in-chief and tennis partner was offered £1.5m donation to the Labour Party he refused that in favour of a £1.5m loan?

Tony Blair: It is not my intention to give a running commentary on this issue but I can say that I'm delighted that so many successful people support the Labour Party and quite right too.
Talk about making the argument.

Since Blair refuses to answer, it seems only fair to conclude that he's trying to hide something. Like the fact that his policy was to deliberately and intentionally solicit money in such a way that it could be kept secret from the public and from the lords appointment commission. Hurray for open government.
