Political donations come at a cost

The Hester comments have highlighted the risk of taking donations. I would be more concerned with what did Hester expect in return.

Dale Vince donated large sums to Labour to further his business in the expectation of a favourable green policy in the event of a Labour government.

As has been pointed out, Vince said of Hamas, " one man's terrorsit is another man's freedom fighter "

Ashworth accepted a lot of money from a suspect Chinese source.

Glass houses etc.

All this just highlights the worsening hypocrisy and self interest
prevailing in politics

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.

I am a big believer in the saying -

"There's no such thing as a free lunch"-

There is disquiet among some Conservatives about the willingness to accept money from Hester, whose software firm has won lucrative NHS and prison contracts, after the Guardian revealed he told a 2019 meeting that seeing Abbott on TV made “you just want to hate all black women”.

The bigger the donation the bigger the pay-off.

You will probably laud a donor who considers terrorists to be freedom fighters
