Labour's Money Laundering
Union behind BA strike receives £18m from taxpayers in ‘money-laundering’ deal with Labour
Francis Maude, the Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, said: “This really looks like money laundering - taxpayers' money is being funnelled into Unite then put straight back into Labour's coffers.
“It's a real racket, with taxpayers' money being round-tripped into Gordon Brown's re-election fund. We must have much greater transparency on what unions are receiving from the Labour Government in return for their backhanders.”
Strong words, will the media pick up on it or continue to gasp over Ashcroft?
