Coalition agree on back-door State funding of incumbent parties

Don't say I didn't warn about this;

"We will fund 200 all-postal primaries over this Parliament, targeted at seats which have not changed hands for many years. These funds will be allocated to all political parties with seats in Parliament that they take up, in proportion to their share of the total vote in the last general election."

Forget the red herring about postal primaries; this is an agreement to pump taxpayers' money into the central party organisations of the big three dying parties only - parties that have a combined membership of less than 1% of the electorate. They have no right to steal tax money in this way. This is an affront to the British people and an insult to democracy. It is corrupt. It is the sleazy filth that fouls anti-democracies. We must reject it.

I urge you to comment HERE.

When you get there you cannot comment, despite comments being invited. Typical Govt. IT.

You're wasting your time. They don't care what we think. It's obvious that this coalition is as corrupt as the last government.

It worked just fine for me. Try again.
