Labour party to be bailed out by taxpayers?

Blears looks for rule change.

The Labour Party is almost 27 million pounds in debt, and since Inspector John Yates started his "cash for peerages" enquiry the big donors and "lenders" have started to dry up, well, who would wish to be associated in these circumstances?

any political party be substantially financed by the taxpayer? I suspect that the vast majority of us would say no, all political parties should endeavour to raise their funds from their members and supporters, without inducements!

If this financial crisis weren't bad enough, Iain Dale asserts that the "cash for peerages" enquiry will not go away, and that Martin Bright's article in next week's New Statesman will hand another pin to Yates to stick in the old doll.
