Scotland's second richest man, a sprightly 64 is ranked 110 in today's new Sunday Times Rich List has reached into his capacious sporran and bunged Boris £25,00 for his London Mayoral campaign.

Last year he converted a £2.9 million loan he made to secure his peerage, into a gift. He has also donated £200,000 to the party in Scotland. He also pays the £100,000 salary of a senior spin doctor.

He gave Michael Ancram £1,000 towards his leadership fight costs and has also given him £10,000 in 2002, identical sums as Kenyan born Mr John Spurling OBE (1999) of Heidrick & Struggles business consultancy.

In 2006 he became the largest personal donor to the national youth charity The Prince's Trust donating £2Mn.

The son of a mill owner, born in Keith, he was educated at Merchiston Castle, Edinburgh, one of Scotland’s leading public schools, Leeds University and New York’s Columbia Business SchoolStarting as a financial analyst for Doubleday , he set off in 1973 when he was 30 to found his Institute for International Research, and subsequently became the world's biggest trade conference and exhibition organiser.

He employed around 3,000 people and had offices in London, Monaco and Florida, operating across 70 countries. with annual sales of £313 million and profits of £48 million in 2005 when he sold out his 98% interest for a whopping £770million.

He and his wife Christine flit between their £4million vineyard near St Tropez , a £3million apartment in Monte Carlo overlooking the harbour (just near Sir Stelios Hajiannou) and a massive £10 million estate Goede Hoop, an early 20th century house in Noordhoek, near Cape Town, South Africa—the most expensive house in the country.

Besdies fast crs he also likes loose women and regularly flies hookers out to Monte Carlo for cocaine-fuelled bondage romps "behind his wife's back" which the News of the World / Times /Scotsman provides lurid details today ..." sex-mad baron hires up to FIVE vice girls at a time for all-night orgies of spanking, bondage and lesbian lust at his Monaco tax haven....."the lewd Lord was busy splashing out another £27,000, personally arranging for four prostitutes and a male gigolo to join him in Monte Carlo's luxurious Hermitage Hotel for an anything-goes night of shame.

In the £6,000-a-night presidential suite the hookers snorted cocaine and guzzled champagne before getting down to the depraved main event.

One of his stunning escort girls, 22-year-old Vogue model Michelli
Vignardi (?) told us it was a "crazy" party, but added that Laidlaw DOESN'T indulge in the coke" More and in the Sunday Times and the Scotsman plus disgusting pics here

Lord Irvine Laidlaw of Rothiemay has booked himself into a clinic for 6 weeks to straighten himself out from his exotic sex life . "I have made it a rule never to speak to journalists". BBC

Lord Irvine Laidlaw of Rothiemay bought his peerage from the Conservative party and is allegedly (although resident overseas) a Conservative peer and has been since 2004 . He was one of four major donors who received peerages (The others are Greville Howard***, Leonard Steinberg and Sir Stanley Kalms- all nominated by Ian Duncan Smith) to the party to be questioned by police investigating the “cash for peerages” claims but has always declared his donations to the Electoral Commission. Yet despite warnings from David Cameron, he has yet to become a UK resident and pay British taxes. Read the House of Lords Appointments Commission Statement on Lord Laidlaw and tax residency here (11th February 2008)

"During spring 2004, the Commission vetted a list of party-political nominees. One of the individuals on the list, Irvine Laidlaw (now Lord Laidlaw of Rothiemay), was not resident in the UK. Following an exchange of correspondence and a face-to-face meeting, the Commission accepted assurances from Lord Laidlaw that he would become resident in the UK for tax purposes from April 2004. On the basis of this assurance the Commission found no objection to his appointment. The Commission would have taken a different view on Lord Laidlaw’s nomination if it had known that he would not be resident in the UK for tax purposes from April 2004. In June 2004 he was appointed to the House of Lords. "

The ubiquitous Robert Peston had a fascinating note on Lord Laidlow and an FOI request on April 20th which seemd to slip in under the radar. ... just as the CPS gets the files on cash for honours ..... Curiously enough he also blogged on the same topic on April 5th 2007 and was criticised by commentators for mixing politics with business ???

Mr Howard, a Eurosceptic and member of one of Britain's grandest aristocratic families donated £22,000 to the Tories, of which £6,250 was for Mr Duncan Smith's 2001 campaign to become Tory leader. He also paid Mr Duncan Smith consultancy fees of up to £100,000.

The payments, of £25,000 a year in the four years until Mr Duncan Smith became Tory leader, were for consultancy to two engineering firms, Wicksteed and Fortress Holdings, run by Mr Howard. Mr Howard did not have to declare the payments to the Lords watchdog because the rules require people nominated as peers to declare only donations to a political party.

Ulster born Mr Steinberg, a philanthropist and founder of the betting-shop chain Stanley Leisure, gave the Conservative party £3.2m. for his peerage Sir Stanley Kalms, the Dixons millionaire, gave the party £1m "in kind", such as air travel most of it flying William Hague about.

Bamboo seeds have shown remarkable results in Mizoram in helping men to get rid of sexual incapability, but as bamboo seeds are not scientifically proved to be effective for male reproduction, it won’t be suitable for you to opt for bamboo seeds. So, now only viagra is the perfect ED solution for you and for first hand knowledge on Viagra effects, log in to the website http://www.viagraforce.com/

Viagra is prescribed to treat different problems, like erectile dysfunction, altitude sickness and pulmonary hypertension. The drug is considered to be safe, but it's too premature to start prescribing viagra to treat muscular dystrophy. Serious clinical trials should be led before Sildenafil will be approved for treatment of muscular dystrophy. http://www.besthealthmed.com/viagra_dosage.html

Due to the fact that not everyone can afford the high prices of the brand name Viagra, manufacturers have created a generic viagra version of it, a copy containing the same ingredients and formula, producing the same effects but having a different look. Generic Viagra online is intended for those who need a cheaper version of Viagra. You can buy Viagra online at excellent prices, and you can even find offers and discounts online as well
