 'At the time of the instructions received from the late Miss Edwards, the Solicitor specifically checked with Miss Edwards about the unusual nature of her proposed bequest and it was confirmed by Miss Edwards at the time of her instructions that her estate was to be left to whichever political party formed the Government at the date of her death.'

 

Sorted.  They can have the money back then.

The lawyers need a beating then about producing such an unreadable and imprecise legal document.

 

I disagree strongly!

A bit of an August political non-story from the Daily Flail for me, with Labour politicians expressing their faux "astonishment." It might have been a story if the parties had turned down donations from this lady...

It was the Mails 'scoop' about the actual will. 


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I could see that one: "Camerons snub beyond the grave' or some such headline.

I don't blame the Lib/Dems or the Tories for taking the money - it had no strings attached. Someone has to pay for politics.  Cameron has been taunting Labour over its Union connections - and Milliband has been reciprocating over where the Tories get their money from.  But the point is that party politics costs money and the money has to come from somewhere. Being all self righteous about it doesn't solve the problem. It would be a brave government that passed a law saying it should come from the tax-payer and be limited. But that's where it should come from IMO.


While cowards flinch and traitors sneer.

The Mail leads, the others follow....or is it `copy`

Anyway, yes, the on line mail is rubbish but some on here repeated it.

City AM had the story 24hrs before the Wail. And why is it the parties fault and their ethics? They are not the executors of this lady's will....

.... political parties are part of the legislature ...


I'm a bit confused by what you mean by this Craig. The "legislature" could be full of elected/appointed independents. 'Constitutionally' political parties have no real status. Although, granted, there are mechanisms in both houses to smooth the course of business.

 Miliband of Brothers still gives a fortune to Labour in return for (lack of) policies. And it STILL believes in debt. The party It is listed as having outstanding loans of £12.79m.
