Peter Cruddas: Would 'disowned' Tory take his job back?

Former Conservative co-treasurer Peter Cruddas has told BBC Newsnight that his libel victory over Sunday Times allegations about charging to meet David Cameron is "not closure".

Mr Cruddas won £180,000 in damages from the Sunday paper - which has said that it will appeal.

In the court ruling, Mr Justice Tugendhat said Mr Cruddas had "suffered public humiliation from the prime minister".

On the day the article was published, Mr Cameron suggested the allegations contained in it were "completely unacceptable" and it was "quite right" that Mr Cruddas had resigned.

Newsnight's Political editor Allegra Stratton asked whether he would take his job back if it was offered to him.
