Loans for peerages

The Tories are wrong to propose "an element of state-funding". This amounts to political parties demanding and coercing the public into funding them. A Conservative spokesman said "we want people to make more donations, more smaller donations, from more people. To pay for this there will be an element of state funding." I'm sorry? To pay for this? How does more people making more donations require the state to fund or pay for anything? Surely it's individuals paying for it? Unless, of course, the Conservative Party sees the income they currently get as something to which they have a divine right.

I, for one, do not want to see any of my tax money go to the Labour Party. I would like the Labour Party to be destroyed. I don't want it to be propped up. Other failing businesses are told to shape up or die, they're not propped up by taxation. The same should be the case for political parties. It's spineless. Funny how, when it comes to funding for ourselves, politicians all seem to be socialists now...
