    Development approval "nothing to do with" £200,000 Labour donation

    Today's Independent looks at Minerva's donation to New Labour, and a tower block development in London:

    John Prescott, the Deputy Prime Minister, is facing suggestions that there could have been a link between a £200,000 donation to Labour by Sir David Garrard, former head of the Minerva group, and the company's planning application for an office block called Minerva Tower. English Heritage claimed it would ruin views of the Tower of London, but Mr Prescott refused to call in the application for review after it was approved by the Corporation of London. The charge was dismissed by his officials, who said his refusal to intervene was "based on the merits of the case".

    No, of course, the decision had absolutely nothing to do with that £200,000 donation. This lot think the public is stupid if they think we believe that.
