LabourList Funding Revealed

Alex Smith at LabourList was a bit slow in publishing his accounts – they came out long after they were promised – nevertheless totaling some thirty grand here they are:

Receipts as of November 8th, 2009 are as follows

Supporter Donations:
By PayPal (£550)
By Cheque (£25)

Advertising:
Unite (£10,000)
Message Space (varies)

Sponsorship:
BM Creative Management (£10,000)
Betterworld (£5,000)
Mike Craven (£3,000)

UPDATE : Unite the union is the parent company of the Labour Party so no surprise to see them on the donor list – good work by Charlie Whelan.  BM Creative Management is Paul O’Grady’s management company which is owned by Labour Lord Waheed Alli.  Still digging into the other donors…

UPDATE II : Mike Craven was the Labour Party’s chief of spin before he became a lobbyist. His clients include Monsanto and Big Pharma corporations.

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
