Labour in Hock to the Co-Op and Unions

Just had a quick look at the Labour loans reports, out of a total of some £23.4 m, just under £14m is owed to the Co-Op and it’s subsidary Unity Trust Bank. UTB is a joint venture with the unions.

UTB is how the union bosses launder their money to support the Labour party. UTB is a small bank which because it has concentrated so much of it’s lending risk with one rather risky creditor – the Labour party – is obliged to make monthly risk reports to the FSA. No surprise that commercial banks are unwilling to risk lending to the Labour party.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
