Is there no end to this?
Two blogs expose further areas of financial irregularity in the current party funding row. Iain Dale highlights Labour breaking spending limits in the South Staffordshire deferred election - technically not a by-election and thus with a campaign spending limit of £10,000 not £100,000. Meanwhile Slugger O'Toole has details of a cover-up in Belfast, with the Ulster Unionists shunting a large donation around the Union Research Group. The story raises the question as to how many more large donations have been discretely received by parties?
