  4. Yeah, your right - nearly a non-story.....

    Activities of our Secretary of State for Defence been funded by Mick Davis chairman of the United Jewish Israel Appeal.

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

    p.s. Nice man to have backing you - Mick Davis earnt £18,426,105 in tax year 2010/11 !!
  5. Morale: you may vote for this or that party, government, politician but really the Big Money makes vital decisions and fund the parties, governments, politicians.

    Moreover, the real dicision centre is far away, not in the UK.
  6. Thank you Propaganda Dog for enlightening us from your 3rd world oligarchy.

  9. 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 ****?

    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 ;)
  12. Like Trade Unions funding the Labour party, is that not buying influence?

    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.

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
