"If politicians can be bought for [these] amounts ... it’s the politicians who are wrong not the threshold." #QotD


“Politicians having to justify their work to supporters, members, and donors is healthy. Public funding would give a huge advantage to the established political parties. It professionalises politics and stamps on the grass roots.
    “The vast majority of donations made to political parties are small. That is a good thing. It means politicians and party bosses are accountable to many.”

    "If politicians can be bought for the amounts under the threshold for disclosure, it’s the politicians who are wrong not the threshold."
