I am sick to death of Labour's attitude to public money. Remember the way that Labour MPs in marginal seats abused their postage allowance by blanket bombing their constituencies with mail? I do!
So Labour brought in the communications allowance, the punishment for a breach of the rules was receipt of more public funds. Did it work? No it didn't, Labour MPs are still abusing the system, we just have to pay more for the privilege.
Labour has now broken the law with regard to fundraising, Gordon's solution is increased public funding for political parties. NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
Squeezing the general public because the Labour party can't stick to the law is disgusting. There should be marching in the streets. I don't think for a second that changing the law on party funding will stop Labour breaking it, it didn't last time.
