Without dropping a beat Gordon has today given a further £2.8m of taxpayers’ money to the unions to top up the Union Modernisation Fund; a fund that has already received £10m of taxpayers’ money. Oh, I almost forgot to mention Labour received almost £17m from unions last year.
But if the unions can afford to give £17m in donations to Labour doesn’t that mean they have more than enough money to pay for ‘modernisation’ without the taxpayers’ help? In fact it looks a lot like they’d even have enough left over to make a hefty donation to the Labour Party (and pay for some placards).
If anyone can explain how the Union Modernisation Fund is anything more than a money laundering operation to turn tax revenue into political donations I will be eternally grateful.
Yes, it looks that way to me. Come to think of it, why the fuck is any of my money going to the damn unions at all? If the unions want to modernise, shouldn't they look to their members for funds?
This is, as Shane says, blatant money laundering; it is allowing the Labour Party to fund itself with taxpayers' money.
Fuck, but they're a bunch of corrupt fucking cunts.
