Now Cameron's Tories have their very own "donorgate"

Oh dear, dear, dear! Naughty, naughty, naughty!

David Cameron's constituency party has admitted receiving more than £7,000 in invalid donations, it has been revealed.

The Witney Conservative Association has agreed to forfeit the sum to public funds because the benefactors were not on the UK electoral roll.

The news will be embarrassing for the Tory leader, who has been scathing in his criticism of Labour over the "proxy" donors scandal.

However, aides insist privately that the latest funding incident was the result of a "genuine mistake", and point out that Mr Cameron has stressed that errors will always occur at a local level.
