The Cruddas Affair Explained.

Listen very carefully. I will say this only once. Political parties claim to represent certain sections of society, certain interests. In order to ensure that their electoral campaigns are well funded parties collect money from their supporters. The Tory Party represents the interests of business and the landed aristocracy whilst Labour claim to represent those of organized labour. LibDem are not sure who they represent and for that reason collect very little money. This Cruddas geezer was simply doing his job, getting money for his party from people who thought that their interests might be better served. The job of the party is simply to get/keep power. Our job is to vote and go back to sleep. It's how they do. Get over it.

Everybody knows that this is how the system works. Why do the media pretend to be shocked, when they are in the business of ensuring that things remain unchanged?
"An honest politician is one who, when bought, stays bought." that statement dates back about 150 years.
