The Liberal Democrats could still be forced to pay back £2.4m in donations from convicted perjurer Michael Brown, the Electoral Commission has said.
The watchdog has previously said the party could keep the cash donated by Mr Brown's company 5th Avenue Partners ahead of the last election.
But new information has come to light about the company which may make the donation "impermissible," it said.
It will reach a final decision "in the next few weeks".
So how many people are going to have to sell their sandals to keep this lot afloat then eh?
Mind you.. I'll warrant Sir Ming's not short of a bob or two, shall we see how far his "rich supporting the poor" stance goes in a few weeks time?
