Donation Inflation: The Real Scandal

26 Mar

They’re calling it “Cam Dine With Me”, “Cash For Cameron”, “donorlunchgate” and “Dinner Plate Gate” and a variety of other stupid names (stop sticking -gate at the end of things, it’s not “new”, “witty” or “clever”) but they’re missing the real scandal.  The massive rate of inflation.

Only a decade ago a donation of a mere £125K could get you a Prime Minister who would intercede with a foreign power to help you swing a £0.3 billion business deal for your non British company, the same Prime Minister would then misinform the Commons about the matter and pretend the company was British

Now twice that amount gets you a meal … possibly.

By contrast if you donate large amounts to the Labour Party the guarantee is that you then don’t have to meet their leader.

    Will you be celebrating, a week on monday, the 20-year anniversary of the last time the Tories won a majority?

    They’re looking pretty desperate at the moment. If the Labour Party finds someone capable of hitting the target, they won’t make this term.
