It seems as if anyone who has made a substantial donation to political party funds may be investigated in the cash for honours scandal. Personally like many other matelots believe that I have given substantial amounts of my hard earned cash to both the labour party & conservative party. This was done by drinking copious quantities of alcohol in their social clubs (plenty of cheap booze and extended hours before all day opening came in). I believe that I and many others of my ilk are long overdue for an elevation to the peerage. I have my name picked out already: Lord Slim of Bugis street What name are you claiming?
