Non-doms: Britain's integrity postponed
Now it seems that even this has a nasty taste to it. From The Observer:
"A much-publicised law designed to stop wealthy tax exiles bankrolling political parties has been quietly dropped until after a general election, the Observer has learned.
. . . .
The disclosure means that key Labour donors such as Lakshmi Mittal as well as Tory donor Lord Ashcroft will still be able to pump millions of pounds into the forthcoming election campaign, despite promises to curb the influence of wealthy backers. It has prompted accusations that the government has "nobbled" an act of parliament."
The Liberal Democrat spokesman had it right:
"To support an important piece of legislation stopping this underhand practice and not bring it in before a general election is like banning a drug-taking footballer but allowing him to play in the cup final."
When will this wickedness cease?
