Pro-Israel groups may be involved in the scandal with Liam Fox

Pro-Israel groups may be involved in British scandal - Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

The scandal that led to the recent resignation of Britain’s high-powered defense minister has laid bare a seamy underside to the funding and influencing of politicians in the United Kingdom, and the donors of some of the country’s key pro-Israel groups appear to be near the center of the affair.

Liam Fox, who resigned his defense post October 14, has been forced to explain the nature of his relationship with Adam Werritty...
...
The bright light now being shone on the Fox resignation may change that state of affairs. Fox officially quit his post because he allowed Werritty, his close friend, to pursue his own business interests at the heart of government without an official role.
...
Now the focus has shifted to Pargav, the not-for-profit organization that Werritty set up to fund his travels on Fox’s behalf. Among its major donors is Mick Davis, chair of the board of trustees of the Jewish Leadership Council and chairman of the United Jewish Israel Appeal. Davis, 52, is also chief executive of the mining company Xstrata, listed in the top 100 companies on the London Stock Exchange, with a market value of about $65 billion.

I'm sure these kind of payments don't influence government policy at all...

A Ruskie points out that 'our' polititians are effectively bought and paid for, in this case by the chairman of the United Jewish Israel Appeal, and no one seems to give a ****?

Not harsh enough - i like it rough!

Now, back on topic, **** wit. Any opinion on private individuals funding our polititians?

p.s. It's not a conspiracy, that's just what everyone wants you to think ;)

You are indeed a fruitcake. Fox would take money from anyone - it doesn't mean squat. Saying that a politico is 'bought and paid for' shows astonishing ignorance, naivety, or just wilful stupidity.


They can only be rented, not bought.

Like Trade Unions funding the Labour party, is that not buying influence?
Not in the same league as a private individual, but yes, it is still buying influence. Public funding of all parties such as the Netherlands, Austria, Spain, France, Sweden, Poland, Israel, Canada, Japan, Mexico, etc

But this was not a donation to a political party, this was a 'donation' to a private organization that funded Fox's best mate to accompany and advise our former Secretary of State for Defence.

Whose interest do you think he was serving?



I don't want to be represented by the party that receives the largest 'donation' for campaigning, or by an MP who does not vote for his constituants best interests, but those of some 'anonymous' donor. I want some confidence that OUR MP's are serving OUR interests, not those of private individuals willing to buy influence.

Your an ignorant tosser. I said 'effectively bought and paid for' - if you like to call that 'renting' our polititians is up to you, but it amounts to the same thing, doesn't it? Polititians do not represent the electorate, they represent their financiers, who ever they maybe.

Then you are the most naive hick that has ever lived. Never in the history of politics has your representative given a rats cock about you. All politicians are beholden to something, be it money or party loyalty or the plain pursuit of power.

You want honest politics? Buy an island and live on your own.

Bought and paid for means mine, rented means mine until someone improves the offer.

If you've ever worked with politicians, you'd be surprised how many do actually have the interests of the electorate at heart.

They are not, contrary to some opinions, all out for themselves, nor do they spend their time advancing the agendas of a hidden cabal.
