Osborne: 'I made a mistake'


Shadow chancellor George Osborne has admitted he "made a mistake" in his handling of meetings in Corfu with Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's World at One, Mr Osborne said: "In politics it's not just what you say or do, it's how things look. If I'm honest, this didn't look very good".

Mr Osborne has denied claims he tried to solicit a party donation from Mr Deripaska.
