The Liberal Democrats’ biggest ever donor has been arrested while on the run dodging a seven-year jail sentence for fraud. Michael Brown bankrolled the party’s lies with £2.4 million of stolen money.
Brown, one of Britain’s most-wanted fraudsters, handed the money to the Lib Dems in 2005 to gain an “air of respectability”—not a great tactic even then.
He was arrested this week in the Dominican Republic, where he was reportedly living a millionaire’s lifestyle.
So that’s one con man caught. Nick Clegg, however, is still at large.
