I have written before about how the Labour government manages to get public money into the Labour party's coffers.
It looks as though some high profile artists may have learned a thing or two from Labour's playbook. The Telegraph reports that a number of the artists who donated work to Livingstone's fund raising art auction are in line to receive around £300,000 if their work gets to be on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth.
Guess where the decision about the winner is made. That's right, the office of the Mayor of London.
