Facebook group on Lord Ashcroft's tax status hits the national media

The facebook group I set up a couple of weeks ago has made it into the Guardian's Diary today...

"Andrew Marr couldn't do it. Neither could Jeremy Paxman. And if David Cameron has done it, he is certainly not letting on. So what chance that the public will be able to prise from Lord Ashcroft an answer to whether he pays his whack of tax in this country or basks in the status of a non-dom? Slim, perhaps, but the push is gaining momentum on Facebook, where more than 1,000 people have now signed up to the site Transparency now on Lord Ashcroft's Tax Status. Ordinary types have signed up, along with stellar names such as Alastair Campbell and Chris Huhne. As part of a pincer movement, an e-petition has also been launched and that has attracted 600 signatures in just over a week. Our politics is broken, David Cameron is prone to say. What a chance to start mending it."
