Party Funding Figures Out

cashParty funding figures for the last quarter are out. Excluding public money, between October and December last year the Tories received £3,309,109 in donations, Labour £2,592,885 and the LibDems just £570,959. The three biggest donors were Unite, Unison and the GMB, who funnelled over £1.5 million of their gold to you know who. Things don’t change…

    Who on earth is still donating to the Liberal Democrats? What could they possibly hope to gain by it?

    Hmmm, one party takes money from people who want better pay / jobs… the other party takes money from people who want to lower pay / cut jobs.

    1.5 million pounds worth of union members subs, but how much went on the two union bosses salaries and pensions. I would hazard a guess of around 250,000 pounds for salaries, pensions and perks. That’s just the start.
    Comrades, brothers, do you not think you are being stung?

      I haven’t been a union member for several years now. Wild horses couldn’t drag me back. They stab us working class white English in the back, and they’re sod all use when you actually need the bastards.

        Several hundred thousand ex-union members would seem to agree with you. I tore my card up in 1982 – and gave myself a 170 quid tax free annual pay rise in the process, which is much more than the union ‘negotiators’ ever got for me.

        It is such a shame that union members today seem to be too thick to realise that they funding a very luxurious lifestyle for their leaders. You would think that so called ‘educated’ teachers would be bright enough to suss this out for themselves.

    Why begrudge the LibDems receiving around 17.5% of the Tories’ donations? After all, had there been state funding they would have received an amount proportionate to each party’s vote share in the last general election: 65.5% of that of their coalition partners…..so rather more than £571,000.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
