Sir Christopher said party donations should be capped at £10,000 and state funding increased to remove the taint of corruption.
This after wibble about how large donations are seen to be for preferential access.
Look, maybe donations do buy influence. Maybe the unions\’ money gets them Labour MPs as lapdogs, just as hedge fund money gets the attention of Conservative MPs.
Heck, I\’ve been at a dinner or two where a political party was trying to shake down a couple of rich men (erm, angling for a donation).
But all of that is far better than the idea that the taxpayer be forced, at gunpoint, to pay for politicians and their parties.
