Perhaps this whole Abrahams and party funding thing has been cooked up?
British party politics is not corrupt. Yet our parties are being forced to sail ever closer to the wind in order to pay for their campaigns. The case for new, fair and copper-bottomed party funding arrangements – which the Queen\’s speech pledged to introduce – grows more urgent by the week.
Paranoia, of course: even though there are, I\’m sure, those who would insist that ditching a party organiser or two, perhaps Mrs. Dromey as well, in order to attatch th politicians\’ lips firmly to the teat of State party funding would be worth it….I can\’t actually bring myself to believe in the competence of anyone in the political process sufficiently for someone to have made it happen.
However, yes, this will increase the pressure for State funding of political parties. To which the response is simple.
They\’ve proved that they are crooks. You want them to have our money as well?
