Failing Whelk Stall owners seek Taxpayer support
LABOUR wants taxpayers to plug a gaping hole in the party’s finances caused by a collapse in donations after the cash-for-peerages allegations.
Hazel Blears, the party chairman, told The Times yesterday that Labour, as the party of government, should get more public money to support political work.
Why am I surprised that the Party itself is now a welfare scrounger whining that the taxpayer should support it in the manner it has become accustomed. It is very simple; if people don't value a party enough to voluntarily pay for it then tough, it has failed in the marketplace of ideas. Don't come whining to me that I should have my money mulcted to support your pampered lifestyle, your friends and the expensive habits of your advertising gurus. Why because you can no longer count on living on the proceeds of (an alleged) crime should honest people now have to pay?
