Cameron's “dead horse” is coming alive

We need to remind ourselves what David Cameron said the other day about Lord Ashcroft:

I admire people who want to flog this dead horse, but the horse is dead, and should no longer be flogged.

William Hague has given this story a new lease of life.

What was said to whom all those years ago when Ashcroft was given a peerage?

Has Ashcroft himself been rather economical with the truth in his little talks with Cameron and Hague over his tax affairs?

When was Cameron told about Ashcroft's non-dom status?

This small matter is raising questions about Hague’s judgment and Cameron's management of the Tory party.

The polls are indicating that this is still a Westminster village saga, but it could filter down to The Voters’ Arms before long.
