John Denham on Labour Donor Scandal
I listened to John Denham MP's comments on the unfolding Labour funding debacle, on The Politics Show today.
He was peddling the same line as other Labour figures on this matter; that the rules need to be reconsidered and we need a wider debate on party funding.
The problem is not the rules, its that Labour flagrantly broke them!
It doesn't matter what new rules are brought in if Labour are going to ignore them. I certainly don't think we should be forced to pay more tax to fund political parties because Labour can't be trusted to be honest.
