Over on Slugger O’Toole, Mick Fealty produces an excellent post on Party Funding and speculates as to why SDLP are a bit reluctant to have donors based in the Republic of Ireland named publicly. He speculates that it does not want a list of “wealthy Dublin donors” in the public domain.
He further sprculates that Sinn Fein might have a prolem with the “elastic industrial wages” of their Elected politicians.
And he speculates that DUP dont want their property developer friends named.
Alas Mick makes no speculation about Alliance Party funding. They now publish donations. But have I ever mentioned Alliance Party got £98,000 from A Rowntree trust between 2007-2011?
It has been described as “chocolate money…innocent money….Quaker money” by….er Sluggers good friend Quintin Oliver.
