Lord Laidlaw: Tory donor sex with hookers, orgies, admits addiction

Lord Laidlaw: Tory donor sex with hookers, orgies, admits addiction Things are just not looking good in the capital of online gambling, where the leading Tory donor, Lord Laidlaw, 64, has been exposed for holding orgies with £3,000-a-night hookers, later admitting to the expensive orgies. According to The News of the World, he was flying in prostitutes who charged thousands of pounds a night for the orgies in his Monaco mention. Lord (Irvine) Laidlaw later admitted the accusations in a letter to the tabloid, which revealed he had been struggling with sex addiction for decades. "I have been fighting sexual addiction for my whole adult life. Sexual addiction is comparable to the other, better known addictions such as drug, alcohol and gambling. Many people suffer different types of this disease. There is no cure for it, and self-help is rarely successful. But having an addiction is no excuse for my behaviour. I have been in therapy a number of times, but I have not worked hard enough or continuously enough on this. I should have been stronger in resisting the temptations. I hope that, in time, people will be able to understand and forgive me as I fight this difficult personal battle," read the Lord Laidlaw letter.

 According to The News of the World, Lord Laidlaw was one of the VIP clients for a few madams, , one drug and champagne-fuelled party with four prostitutes and a male gigolo in an exclusive Monte Carlo hotel is said to have cost him £27,000. It's said that the hookers drank champagne and fine wines before taking part in lesbian and bondage sex acts. The Monaco-based Scotsman is set to undergo six weeks of therapy in South Africa, his spokesman confirmed. He will also contribute £1m to an as yet undecided clinic to help others fighting similar addictions.

 Lord Laidlaw made his fortune after establishing the world's biggest conference organizing company, the Institute for International Research which he sold in 2005 for £768 million, and currently his fortune is estimated at £730 million. He became a Tory peer in 2004 and agreed to renounce his status as a tax exile but four years on, he is still not a UK resident and does not pay British taxes. The peer is the Tories' biggest donor and has given £6 million to the party under David Cameron's leadership alone. He has also given money to Boris Johnson's campaign to become London mayor. Despite the scandal, Boris Johnson remains the favorite to become the next Mayor of London with odds 8/13 at the British bookmaker Bet 365, followed by Ken Livingstone at 6/5 and underdog Brian Paddick at 80/1.
