TRUST fund Tory Zac Goldsmith [...].
Byline: KEVIN MAGUIRE
TRUST fund Tory Zac Goldsmith inherited a PS300million fortune, so he can easily afford PS55,000 to ask me and 76,999 other constituents to let him break a promise and run for London Mayor.
Likeable Goldsmith would be a formidable Con opponent for Labour, but with his loot young moneybags could afford an independent secret ballot. Requiring coded votes to be posted to the local Tory HQ doesn't inspire confidence in the privacy of the poll.
I'VE no wish to upset Ebola nurse William Pooley MBE or Alan Barnes' angel Katie Cutler BEM, but sprinkling a few lower honours on worthy recipients is a fig leaf for a corrupt system, or he would be Sir William and she would be Lady Katie, instead of prized knighthoods and damehoods going to party donors and lackeys.
