By the way . . .
Sir David Garrard bunged New Labour £200,000 in June 2003 and had planning permission for his company's Minerva Tower, which will be London's tallest building at 712 feet tall, waved through the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister without scrutiny in January 2004. Similar projects have been subjected to a public inquiry and rejected.
Garrard received a knighthood in 2002 after he got his charitable trust to donate £2.4 million to the Bexley Business Academy, Kent.
He loaned £2.3 million to New Labour in 2005 and was nominated for a peerage. [But he withdrew his name from the list when the loans for peerages scandal broke in March 2006.]
   The Minerva company's Park Palace retail centre in Croydon got similar preferential treatment.
