Bought and paid for!

The Telegraph has a piece on the state of the three main parties’ finances HERE. Apparently, since Ed Miliband was elected leader, Labour has lost more than its sparkle – his unpopularity it seems is a very costly business.

Since his election last year, the party received only two private donations the largest was £10,000 made by Alastair Campbell. Bar that almost 90 percent of Labour’s money comes from the unions – but what made me chuckle – that percentage is almost double what they used to get when Gordon Brown was their leader!

It clearly explains Miliband’s attitude towards the deficit and his lukewarm opposition to all thing unions – strikes, marches …… extra. But, is anyone surprised – we all remember too well who gave him this leadership.
