From BBC News:

Dame Shirley Porter has agreed a provisional 12.3m settlement with Westminster City Council over the so-called 'homes-for-votes' scandal.

The former Westminster City Council leader was disgraced over a plot to sell off cut-price council houses to potential Tory supporters.

The council and the Audit Commission announced the deal with Dame Shirley and her family on Saturday.

It is subject to approval in the British Virgin Island courts.

2. One's heart bleeds for the suffering
<<Dame Shirley also spoke of the stress the case had caused.

"This case has already lasted 18 years and inflicted tremendous legal and emotional cost - in particular on my family, who have been unfairly drawn in." >>
