Courtney Coventry and Cash for Honours


Below is part of "The Statement Emailed to Police by Courtney Coventry." http://www.courtneycoventry.com/statement.html

"My name is Courtney Coventry. I met with Lord Levy over possible donations to the party...

"Lord Levy grabbed my husbands arm and pulled us over to one side saying to Mr. Blair that he had to discuss something with us. Lord Levy then asked my husband to confirm an amount he would donate and how grateful 'Tony' would be. My husband said that we were not ready to give a commitment to a figure but we would consider it over the course of the next few days. Lord Levy then proceeded to push further and said that given the right amount he mentioned 500,000 pounds and 300,000 pounds he would make sure 'Tony' would have John put on the honors list. We were more than a little taken aback but before we could fully register what had been said Lord Levy called Mr. Blair over and said that we were going to make a substantial donation to the party and then added that he was sure we could arrange an honour for services to the party. Mr. Blair looking a little embarrassed nodded and smiled...

"We arrived at the House of Lords and met Lord Levy who took us on a guided tour...

"Lord Levy discussed again, how grateful the party would be for our support and said he had discussed honours and that my husband would be placed on the honours list as a result of a substantial donation or loan as he called it when he tried to press us for a higher amount than the hundred thousand we had said we were considering. Levy said why didn’t we loan the labour party 300,000 then at a later date we could convert this to a donation and that he was certain we could afford this. As I knew nothing about the way in which your honours system works I asked... Lord Levy how he would arrange to have John put on the honours list. He said the government makes the recommendations and 'He would make sure Tony dealt with it.'...

I knew Levy was guilty he stinks of Labour sleaze I just had a look at courtney coventry website and the london link www.courtneycoventry.com/london and I was horrified It looks as though they set her up to be trashed so she could not be a witness This government is corrupt to the core Guido has started a movement towards a private prosecution on his site (you can search Guido Fawkes to get it) and I for one hope he is sucessful!
