Ed to Pick Your Pockets to Pay for Labour

Ed Miliband has been too weak to stand up to Len McCluskey who has been rigging Labour’s candidate selections. As a result, Ed Miliband is now asking hardworking taxpayers to bail him out.

A £5,000 cap would mean a massive increase in taxpayer funding for political parties. I do not believe that the result of a trade union scandal should be every taxpayer in the country paying for the Labour Party.

It is a scandal that Ed Miliband would tax hardworking people more to pay for his speechwriters, his spin doctors, his conferences, his party political broadcasts, and his party political literature.

It’s the same old Labour. They want more taxes, to pay for more politicians, spending more of your money.

Congratulations. You have successfully added 2 and 2 and made 5.

Now, remind me why a £5000 cap on donations must result in tax-payer funded parties?

Because unless you have been hiding in the toilet for the last week it has been widely reported in the press, including left leaning newspapers like the Guardian and Independent, that this will be included in the Labour 2015 manifesto. The link can be found here

The question I want asking is whether Labour's proposed cap on donations will also apply to Unions?

Julian Ware-Lane said...

You are being somewhat premature ("... Although Labour has taken no decisions on taxpayer support ...") and a some distance from being accurate.

Of course, any donation cap must apply across the board - no exceptions.
