One of the Conservative party donors entertained by David Cameron was billionaire businessman Michael Spencer who has a house near Woodbridge and is an associate director of Ipswich Town.
The Ipwich Star picked up on this story today and went to local MP Ben Gummer for a quote in which he called for a £50,000 cap on “single donations”.
There is no mention of the fact that Mr Spencer’s business made a £5,000 donation towards Mr Gummer’s election campaign. But Ipswich Spy has been quick to fill in the missing information.
Could that reference to “single donations” be significant?
