UPDATE: 3 October, 2014 -- Now we, most probably, will not get any further new list of the individual donations on the last Summer Ball since the press was gagged.
UPDATE: 2 August 2013 --- Yet David Cameron and his party always point at the Labour Party because the Unions are supporting the Labour. These figures had been revealed but will it be the real amounts donated to the Tories?
Now we know what David Cameron is talking about when he mentions the “Big Society”. However, his real meaning of the "Big Society" was an army of volunteers, workers paid not even the minimum wage at full time and if possible cut a full time job down to half time and given out contracts with no security, holidays payment and pension entitlements. All aimed to get the bankers, manufacturers and financiers even higher salaries and bonuses which they siphon off to a tax-haven to avoid paying taxes into the country where they got their riches from.
It was revealed that:
Hans Rousing and family donated £886.000
Sir Anthony Bamford & family donated £4.774.442
The Fleming family £1.378.000
Lord Ashcroft £6.110733
Mr Cruddas £1.133.449
Lord Irwin Laidlow £4.549.408
Lord Ballaydmond £1495.044
Michael Hintze ££1.678.444
Lord John Sainsbury £1.236.656
Michael Spencer £4.861755
Lord Edmiston £4.220.333
The Ghetty family £5.005.000
John Cook £706.307
Lord Glendonbrook £1.110.000
The Scott family £708.320
Lord Philip Harris of Peckham £2.144.191
Dave Whelan £1.350.000
Michael Farmer £3.919.646
Lord Fink £2.789.507
All these donations had been made in 2011 and adding up altogether to £83m including many small or smaller donations. Quite a number of these 20 top donors made their fortune in finance. This is again an eye opener why the government will not bring a law out to stop them getting these sky high bonuses or tax them as planned. It was planned for five minutes and then cancelled again.
Now this is definitely the “Big Society”. By now the total of the Conservative Party treasure chest contains a £114billion. Mind you this is the official figure.
GMB leader Paul Kenny said: “It is clear that the wealthy look to the Conservative Party to protect their interests. This is not philanthropy. It is an investment by an elite in an elite to look after their interests.”
Yet it is the Conservative party pointing the finger at the Labour receiving donation which is not even half as much. Don’t have any doubt that these huge donations are there to safeguard winning the next election because it is a factor which can be decisive. Therefore, the voters should not be blinded by pomp and great campaigns for the next election. Hopefully the voters will decide what happened in the following-up years and vote accordingly.
It is disgusting that these big spenders could not put there hands into their pockets to support the NHS and pensioners. It is a disgrace.
THIS IS THE REAL “BIG SOCIETY” AND WE ARE DEFINITLY NOT IN THERE TOGETHER.
NOTHING BUT EMPTY AND SHALLOW WORDS FROM THE PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON WHILE HE LOOKS AFTER HIS OWN.
IT NEVER WAS SO OBVIOUS.
