    Not really surprised to hear this Brydo. It is something that needs to be addressed.

    Anyone can give a donation or loan to a political party, individual or other organisation. There is no limit on how much someone can give if they are a permissible source.

    It is up to the political party, individual or other organisation to check if the donation or loan is from a permissible source, and if they can accept it or not.

    Permissible sources in Great Briton.

    individuals registered on a UK electoral register, including overseas electors and those leaving bequests
    most UK-registered companies
    Great Britain registered political parties
    UK-registered trade unions
    UK-registered building societies
    UK-registered limited liability partnerships (LLP) that carry on business in the UK
    UK-registered friendly societies
    UK-based unincorporated associations that carry on business or other activities in the UK
    some types of trust and certain public funds
    Where someone pays for the reasonable costs of an overseas visit, they are deemed to be a permissible donor.

    Donations to regulated donees

    Donations accepted by political parties

    Of course the Labour Party is permanently envious of not receiving anywhere near the same levels of donations from the Trade Unions, so I gave them £3 to help them out.

    It’s not about the amount wigwam. More who and why, they are donating such vast sums. They just don’t do it out of the goodness of their heart, that’s for sure.

    Of course they don’t, Joss, they do it to buy influence or to get a knighthood or both. Twas ever thus. Same as lobbyists, they splash money about in parliamentary circles like there was no tomorrow. One of the reasons people want to be MPs of any party is to join the gravy train of all that wealth.

    Indeed Wigwam. It is something that I abhor. The greed. They are all as bad on that score.

    Yes it’s unfair, but it is universal in any political system. Humans are greedy.
