FOR SALE - CONSERVATIVE MINISTERS £1000 A TIME

The Conservatives have been accused of offering businessmen access to ministers in return for cash.

Wealthy supporters have been invited to enjoy "fine wines and superb food" with senior figures during the party's conference in Birmingham in September.

Tickets are on sale at £500 and each table will include a "prominent Conservative MP".

Chancellor George Osborne is set to be the guest of honour at the first Conservative Party Business Dinner.

The Tories have defended the event and said both Labour and the Liberal Democrats hold similar fundraisers.

"Under the current system, events to raise money are vital to pay for the running of the party, as they always have been for all political parties," a party spokesman said.

But Sir Alistair Graham, a former chairman of the committee on standards in public life, told the Daily Telegraph: "If you're trying to set a high moral tone, this sort of thing is unwise.

"Governing parties need to be very careful about their fund-raising.

"The public reacts very strongly to the idea that you can buy influence with government."

Telegraph reporter James Kirkup, who broke the story, told Sky News the Tories were in danger of not living up to their promise to introduce a "new politics".

WE CANNOT TRUST ANY OF THE MAIN THREE POLITICAL PARTIES TO REPRESENT US.

The only people they represent are the LOBBYISTS and MULTI-MILLIONARE BUSINESS MEN, who will be lobbying for their own needs and not the COUNTRY nor its PEOPLE.

Do you think if we went to lobby our MPs that we would be allowed anywhere near them. Well, only if you can afford a GRAND a time.

The people that matter are ignored for the LOBBYISTS of BIG BUSINESS and FOREIGN DONORS.


Further proof, if needed, that the Lib/Lab/Con will sell our country from under us, isn't it about time we started to FIGHT BACK ?

£1000 seems a bit steep considering that you can get a similar sack of shit for a fiver outside most farms and they even throw in a piece of rope to tie tightly round its neck, something sadly missing from the £1000 version!

There's a name for accepting money for favours and to anyone else it would mean, PRISON!

Amazingly, they know the system is so corrupt they are actually advertising it!

I'm guessing Polly Peck thief, Nadir has already paid up front so he is not hoiked into prison waiting trial.
WTF does he want to come back here for anyway?
