Previously, there were rumblings that Lord Paul was considering quitting the Lords to keep his non-dom status.

Today, he has confirmed that he will end his non-dom status and remain in the Lords.

If you were being cynical, you might think that there's been a change of heart so that Labour can ramp up their attacks on the Tories over Lord Ashcroft.

But surely Brown & Co. would want to keep their focus on the "serious business" of government, wouldn't they?
