Is This the End of Tory Finger Wagging?

"But you do it too!" as Mark Thompson pointed out was not the best defence of the Tories over Lord Ashcroft's non-dom status.

The 'innocent' plea of I'll only do it one I am required to do so, from Ashcroft himself showed how weak and ineffectual first William Hague and latterly David Cameron have been in holding their own peers to promises that they have made to the party.

But now Lord Paul has announced that rather than wait until he told to do so, he will pay full UK tax on his overseas earnings from the start of the next tax year, that is from the 6 April. So if Lord Paul is doing it before any requirement to do so, what now Lord Ashcroft the ball is back in the Conservative court.
