Daily View 2×2: 19 November 2009

Good morning, and welcome to Daily View. Today, in 1990, Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy. It’s the birthday of American President and pizza-loving cat James Garfield.

Today is also both International Men’s Day and International Toilet Day.

Ashcroft’s bank lent millions to disgraced premier

The Independent tells us:

Companies linked to Lord Ashcroft, the billionaire deputy chairman of the Conservative Party, helped finance the lavish lifestyle of the disgraced prime minister of Turks and Caicos islands, an Independent investigation has found.

Labour peers savage Brown’s free care plan

See the Times for more:

A key plank of Gordon Brown’s re-election strategy was condemned by members of his own party yesterday as irresponsible, unaffordable and based on a myth.

The Prime Minister’s plan to offer free care at home to the elderly, outlined yesterday in the last Queen’s Speech before the general election, was compared to “an admiral firing an Exocet into his own flagship”.
