Honours system perverted to reward Neo Labour Donors

Posted in Totalitarianism at 5:10 am by David Gould

Tony Blair has rewarded 3/4 of those who donated 50k+ to Neo Labour under the Honours system. If you can spare a cool million, you can guarantee yourself a peerage or knighthood.

Neo Labour donors are 3 times more likely to rewarded than Tory donors. Chances of this being coincidental are less than 3 in 1000.

It gets worse – Blair just abolished the committee whose job it is to prevent abuse of the system.

Why am I not surprised?
