Enough is Enough

British politics is being polluted by big money.

Scandal after scandal reveals an ever growing arms race, where voters often appear to come second to big donors. Left to themselves the big parties have failed to find a solution.

People are sick to death of party funding scandals. Our politicians urgently need to clean up the way parties raise money.

All the parties have been tainted by party funding. It's time for action.
