    Guildo Fawkes has named a few of Labour’s donors in similar vain.
    Haven’t you heard Tom, it’s GREED that makes the world turn.

    I only caught the last ten minutes but the crux of his argument seemed to be that the Conservative party were allowing influence and access to people who contribute large sums of money.

    Still, no different from government suppliers being obliged to sponsor stands at the Labour party conference or the various cash for access/peerages scandals that have caused Labour so much trouble over the past few years.

    Casting stones while you’re still in the greenhouse is rarely the best idea.

    You should be grateful to Mr Cameron.
    Instead of kicking you when you are down as the labour party did to John Major, he has offered to advise and help you in solving this crisis, With all the skill and expertease the Conservative party can bring, you should welcome it. But of course you wont as no one can tell Labour anything.
    More fool you.

  4. Perhaps richard would care to remind us how many convictions have been obtained as a result of the extensive police investigations into “various cash for access/peerages scandals that have caused Labour so much trouble”…

  5. It is hardly a ground-breaking story that money is being used to influence party policies, every party is at it and I suspect, in most countries. Money has the power to corrupt, we can’t stop it, we just have to accept it.

    “he has offered to advise and help you in solving this crisis”

    Yeah, that’s all we need.One of Norman Lamont’s previous advisor’s helping to sort the economy out. Of course Cameron’s change of tone has nothing to do with the fact that the public have been too savvy to buy Cameron’s recent line that the collapse of banks worldwide is all the fault of Gordon Brown.Cameron was painting himself into a corner and his credibility was suffering.Yes, amazingly he had some credibility despite his policies falling t0 pieces at the slightest scrutiny.
    Cameron was,is and always will be a lightweight.

    I suppose the Trade Unions who finance Labour give their money without any influence on policy.

    I also believe in flying pigs as well.

    “Perhaps richard would care to remind us how many convictions have been obtained as a result of the extensive police investigations into “various cash for access/peerages scandals that have caused Labour so much trouble”…”

    Although I’d dispute the premise that the police investigations were “extensive” I do recall that a cabinet minister and the leader of the Scottish Labour party had to resign in disgrace because they felt that the law didn’t apply to them.
