Issue No. 1736

  • PETER MANDELSON: forced to resign twice because of a dodgy loan from a big business pal and a dodgy passport for a big business friend.
  • KEITH VAZ: exposed for having lots of dodgy business friends.
  • MICHAEL MEACHER: revealed to have more houses than any sane person would know what to do with after condemning others for doing the same.
