Money talks – Good news for Cameron, bad news for democracy? August 26, 2009

Interesting data from the Electoral Commission today provides an insight into political funding.  In the last quarter the Tories banked 49% of all political donations, with Labour enjoying only 33%.  Bad news for Gordon – especially as one political insider was recently suggesting a March election.

Whenever the election – money  – it be donations or expenses will be a key issue.  Time to grow up, I think, and accept that we need to pay parliamentarians an appropriate salary and that perhaps state funding of political parties is the least bad option.
