LD funding update

It seems that the plot thickens regarding this generous donation to the Liberal Democrats.

Not only have the Liberal Democrats argued for a ceiling on individual gifts of £50K, while eagerly accepting the £2.4 million, their election supremo Lord 'Foxy' Rennard dodged the issue when asked about a large donation. In a quote oddly missing from the online copy of the Guardian report, he said
'The figure of £3 million was put to me. That was not right.'

Not entirely open with the truth, one might say.

This is the same man who has argued that large donations could be regarded as 'buying influence or favours.'
