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.
