Lord Levy lowers the tone
Michael Levy made an invaluable contribution to ensuring that Labour had the funds it needed to win recent elections. His work with city academies was crucial to getting them off the ground. And he - and others - were unfairly traduced in the reporting of the so-called 'cash for honours' saga. But it is a complete mystery to me how he thinks his reputation will be enhanced by his becoming a temporary gossip columnist for the Mail on Sunday. Behind the excitable headlines lies an unedifying attempt at self-justification that merely diminishes his undoubted achievements. It is a sad and sorry spectacle.
