Luciana Berger’s Dodgy Dormant Donation

Luciana Berger is shocked that Guido would possibly see a link between her pushing for property development tax cuts in the Commons and taking money from property developers:

“It is clearly defamatory to suggest there is any link between the donation to my constituency party and my question in parliament. My question in the Commons was motivated by a constituent’s concern about the availability of private rented accommodation. It was completely unconnected to any donation to me or Liverpool Wavertree Constituency Party.”

The notion that it’s all hunky-dory because the donation was to her local party and not directly to her bank account is laughable. And note that she only mentions one donation – we raised twoNow, while we have your attention Luciana, perhaps you could explain another donation that has caught our eye…

According the Electoral Commission in April 2011, Berger’s Liverpool Wavertree CLP received £5,000 from a company called ‘Purple Apple Facilities Management’. According to Companies House, as of 31 March 2010 Purple Apple was “dormant” and it was later dissolved. HMRC say “dormant” is a term for “any company or organisation that is not active, trading or carrying on business activity”. Now the problem for Luciana lies in Section 54 of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000. A company is only permissible as a donor if it is a company which “is carrying on business in the United Kingdom”. Purple Apple were not however carrying out any business in the UK. So why was Luciana’s team accepting donations from them?

    If he wants to give money to anyone without expecting anything back, I will be very happy to get money from him.

    As far as I can understand their is no free lunch.

    jgm2 says:

    If one of their constituents was worried about the availability of rented accommodation then why was she not raising questions about increasing the amount of homes built/relaxing planning procedures.

    If developers aren’t building houses it ain’t because of tax considerations. It is simply because they paid too much for the site in the first place and the mar*ket has collapsed. Those developers are part of the problem. We need to encourage different developers to build cheaper homes. And the surest way to build cheaper homes is to slash planning regulations. That way building land will become much cheaper, homes will be much cheaper to build and housing costs for the voters will be lower.

    Yeah, all those empty flats in new builds in cities all over the country bought by BTL fuckwits must be a figment of my imagination.

    Snout well and truly in the fucking trough.

    Neddy and the Goons did this one in 1959. It goes something like..

    I know a little. But if he also knows a little of the little that I know, then he knows a little, but if I know that he knows the little that I know, then the little that he knows plus the little that I know means that the the little of the little that I know he also knows, but how much of the little that I know that he knows do i know of the little that he knows…. etc.

    Oh fer gawdsake! You people need to get over the whole pleb thing already. Get that pile-o-woodchicp off your shoulder, grow a pair (or strap on a pair) and stop whining. So what if the super-rich/ super-rich politicians think they are better than you? THEY ARE! Deal with it. They are smart enough to get into a position where they can scam an entire nation. And they could give a rats patootie what you think about it or them. But you don’t do anything useful to stop it, you just let your class drag you down into the mire.

    All the while allowing the bleeding heart lefties to convince you that you are hard done by, that you have rights, that it is a fair and equal society … you let them fill your head with cr*p and then you somehow feel entitled. Get a grip! Own what you are.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
