Political party funding

Political party funding

Introduce state funding for political parties.
To bring to an end the funding of political parties by wealthy individuals, big business and the trades unions.

Why is this important?

Parliament is there to serve the nation, the whole population, not to further the interests of small sections of society to the exclusion of others.
It is not new; many countries such as Germany and Denmark have such a system. It has it faults but it is not open to the kind of abuse that is rife in the UK.
It's an old adage but still true "He who pays the piper calls the tune".
We must reform this corrupt system.
