No Excuse

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Liebour was given £183,000 by the Electoral Commission in 2001-02 to help them train staff to understand funding rules under the new Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.

Despite having full training at considerable expense to the taxpayer, Liebour has continued to accept various illegal donations.

So, not only did they break the law by accepting donations that they knew were illegal but they did so after the party had received training at the taxpayers expense.  This is fraud of the worst kind – the trust they have been given by the electorate to govern this country in an honest and acceptable manner has been abused.  The Electoral Commission shouldn’t stop at reclaiming illegal donations, they should strike them off the register of political parties and seek a winding-up order against the Liebour Party.  They simply can’t be trusted.  Any company that showed such persistent contempt for the law would have been prosecuted and wound up by now.

    Couldn’t agree more. If it were mere incompetence, it would be astonishing, but it seems to be somewhat more than mere incompetence.

    Didn’t UKIP do the same thing?

    No, UKIP took a donation from someone who was resident in the country and in the name of the donor. Unknown to UKIP or the person making the donation, he had dropped off the electoral roll for a few months.

    Liebour took various illegal donations knowing that they were breaking the law.

    And of course UKIP went to court and forfeited some of the money. But the court decided they didn’t have to forfeit it all because it was an honest mistake. Not sure there’s much honest about Labour’s scandal.

    Exactly. UKIP made a mistake and Liebour’s sockpuppet Electoral Commission tried the walnut and hammer approach. Fortunately, they didn’t manage to nobble the judge and he made sure the punishment fitted the crime. Even then it was a much harsher punishment than when the Tories and Illiberal Dumbasscrats were found to have taken dodgy donations shortly before, which was … erm, no punishment at all.
