Ed Miliband accused of a 'cover-up' claim over £10k donation from Lloyds banker blamed for £21billion fiasco

Ed Miliband was last night accused of trying to cover up a donation from a controversial banker who has faced calls to be stripped of his knighthood.

Sir Victor Blank – the former Lloyds TSB chairman blamed by shareholders for the bank’s humiliating £21 billion taxpayer bailout – gave £10,000 to Labour just days after Mr Miliband made a major speech attacking bankers’ behaviour.
