Quango bung Labour some dosh.
The Glasgow quango set up by the city council which has been implicated in the Steven Purcell scandal has donated £2000 to the Labour Party.
Labour's political opponents are urging the Labour party to return the donation.
How they think they can get away with it is beyond me. It's basically a council giving the Labour party public money as a donation, which is strictly against electoral commission rules. Party officials can be jailed for up to a year. (Never going to happen).
The fact that a previous council department can be changed into a company owned by a council and bank rolled by the tax payer whilst competing with traditional private companies is a scandal in itself.
Crammed full of Labour cronies this company needs disbanding.
