92.6% Control - Who really leads Labour.

Cutbacks still leave Labour with £19m debt - Times Online

The Labour Party still owes almost £19 million to creditors, despite a series of cuts and attempts to impose greater financial discipline.

Donations from wealthy businessmen have slowly dried up, forcing Labour to rely on trade unions for funding.

According to the Electoral Commission, the unions, including Unite and the GMB, contributed between them 92.6 per cent of the party’s total funds in the first three months of this year.

The Prime Minister recently announced that the party would have no spring conference next year in a cash-saving measure. And with the Unions deciding 92.6% of Labour's policies there is no need to consult with the members.
