I can't help wondering if I'm becoming a bit cynical about these donations.

Just how much Government influence do you expect to buy for around £10k or so?

Is there a sale on?

I didn't post those names to imply any influenec, only to show the hypocrisy of Labour attcking the Conservatives for asking for donations from Leyland Daf Vehicles.

£10,000 does not buy new policies - you have to cough up a Bernie or two for that, but the smaller amounts are surprisingly useful in helping to retain government contracts or otherwise curry favour.
