Cameron's plane gets airborne again. Labour brought in a respectable fighting fund of £785k and the Liberal Democrats, the new force in politics, brought in a whopping £20,000. No, that isn't a misprint, but it does predate little St Nick's performance in the debate. Next week's figures could prove interesting.
