Controversies of party funding

  • Controversies of party funding
    • Current party funding promotes political inequality
    • Funding by large donors has a hidden and unaccountable form of political infulence
      • Parties aren't allowed to change specific policies or propose legislation as a direct result of donations, but donors expect some kind of political return for their investment
    • Suspicions of aspects of funding may verge and being corrupt
      • Some donors may expect to receive an honour from party leaders ('cash for honours')
    • Steady decline of party memberships meant parties are more reliant upon donors which further opens up the possibility of corruption and the purchasing of political influence
