The Daily Mail sinks the Tory Treasurer

By Tim Montgomerie

First CCHQ announces that David Rowland will be the new Tory Treasurer.


And a few minutes ago CCHQ issues a press release saying that Mr Rowland will not, after all, become the chief party fundraiser. Mr Rowland commented:

"I was honoured to be asked to become Treasurer. Unfortunately my developing business interests mean I will not have the time to give that role the focus and attention it deserves."

Stanley Fink will now continue as the lead Tory Treasurer.

Big questions need to be asked about CCHQ failing to carry out due diligence on this appointment.
