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?


I don't know what the paper media will do but I guess we'll have to wait (forever or, at best, after the election) for the BBC to pick this one up. I searched the BBC website using the BBC search engine and came up with this. Not very inspiring for an "impartial" news organisation with a budget of, what, £800 million.
