Money for extremists

! 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.

According to the BBC, Sinn Féin in Northern Ireland alone had net income of over £1m from donations and grants whilst the DUP – which leads the Northern Ireland Assembly – made a loss of £27k.

This might explain why the DUP were so keen to join the Conswervatives who are in a far better financial position than Liebour or the Illiberal Dipshits.

It seems that the only way a party can hope to get serious money (other than selling peerages, of course) is to sit on an extreme fringe.  Sinn Féin advocated the use of terrorism to further their agenda and were rewarded with vast amounts of cash, a lot of which was raised in that bastion of democracy and anti-terrorist fervour, the US.  The BNP advocate forced repatriation of immigrants and curtailing freedom of the press and are rewarded with bucket loads of cash from all over the place, again including the US.

    Or it could be that the main parties don’t get any money because they are a set of c**ts.

    That’s not to say I approve of the BNP of course.

    The DUP, lead by Peter Robinson and formerly by the Reverend Ian Paisley, does not want to join the Conservatives. It is the “official” Ulster Unionist Party, lead by Sir Reg Empey and formerly by Lord (David) Trimble, which is seeking closer ties.

    A working relationship has existed between the two parties for a few years now. Trimble was even suggested as a possible Conservative leader back in the days of the lacklustre leadership of Ian Duncan Smith.

    That’s entirely possible as well Rob. It’s interesting that for a country that generally prides itself on tolerance, the more extreme a party is the more money ordinary people seem to want to give them.

    You’re right George, my mistake.
