Hacked Off Donors: #6 Billionaire Labour Lord Sainsbury

Last but not least of the cabal of millionaires who have donated to Hacked Off is Lord Sainsbury.

In passing it should be noted that he was a big backer of the SDP and also has his fingerprints on other politcal organisations such as the Social Market Foundation, Progress, David Miliband’s Movement For Change and the Institute for Government, the last of which Guido thinks is the most serious threat to freedom in Britain since the Communist Party. Through Hacked Off, Sainsbury has surpassed himself…
