Interesting Fact - Money and Politics


According to the GMB trade union, almost a quarter of the richest people in the country are Conservative Party donors, 

(Since 2001, the Tories have received donations of around £83m from 248 out of the top 1,000 on the Sunday Times Rich List.


Tetra Pak billionaire Hans Rausing and his family were shown to have given £886,000 to the party. Peter Cruddas (great name) and Lord Ashcroft, two significant Tory donors, also made the Rich List. Mr Cruddas gave £1.4m, while Lord Ashcroft gave £6.1m. The Fleming family, a banking dynasty worth £1.5bn, donated £1.4m to the Tories.

Well, at least we know who is really running the country.)
