Enhanced scrutiny of political donations

Enhanced scrutiny of political donations

Tighter screening of political candidates and the donations they can receive to eliminate financial bias and open the screening to public engagement.

Why is this important?

Too often policies and decisions are made where there turns out that the politicians involved have some form of connections which could lead them to be biased. For instance, scrutiny of MPs’ interests shows donations and gifts from fossil fuel firms and climate contrarians and that there is a pattern that conservative MP's are more inclined to accept these donations. Members of the public should be able to challenge MP's decisions to accept certain donations.
