Online reports have indicated that Lord Michael Ashcroft is recovering in Belize after having liver, kidney and renal failure.  The Lord had reportedly fallen sick almost three weeks ago, on September 22 and had spent eighteen days in intensive care.  Ashcroft’s illness came at the time when he was launching his new book which featured an unauthorized biography of the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.  He reportedly faced septic shock and was rushed by air ambulance from the Turks and Caicos Islands to the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, USA on September 22.  Ashcroft is now reported to be in a stable condition and recovering in Belize.  The Lord is 69 years old and is reported by Forbes to have a net worth of one point forty eight billion US dollars as at 2015.
