SNP supporters disenfranchised, Labour cash stays secret
Labour has made it very difficult for the SNP to get cash support for its upcoming general
election campaign, but has taken 2 million pounds ($3.2 million) from a secret
donor (as of 1/1/2001) to help its election funding.
The Neill committee on public standards made this behaviour publically unacceptable
and yet Blair continues to do as he pleases.
This is a good example of double standards in public life explicitly used to help prevent any
moves towards dispelling the myth of Scottish reliance on Londons handouts.
Remember Blair helped prop up the sale of cancer causing tobacco after taking money from THAT
industry in 1997.
