Labours cash take points to pecuniary irregularities

Geoffrey Robinson, former paymaster general will almost certainly expose the depth of questionable cash flow situations that Blair and the labour party were involved in both before and after the May 1997 general election in the "UK".

Apparently Blair used a donated 250,000 to finance his private office before the 1997 election and was happy to accept a "six-figure sum" for a war chest to defend himself against a leadership challenge by Gordon Brown, the Chancellor.

So much for Blairs manifesto pledge to end sleaze and make politicians accountable.
