Conservative Party co treasurer has been forced to resign after an "alleged video" filmed by Sunday Times journalists shows Peter Cruddas, offering access to the Prime minister for the small price of £200,000. This will get you access to the Prime minister and the Chancellor and can also , Cruddas claims give you some influence over policy. £250,000 will get you in the "premier league" of the Conservative party. "Alleged" video in the links.


He made the claim to Sunday Times reporters posing as potential donors.

He said £250,000 gave "premier league" access, including dinner with David Cameron and possibly the chance to influence government policy.

"You do really pick up a lot of information and when you see the Prime Minister, you're seeing David Cameron, not the Prime Minister.
"But within that room everything is confidential - you can ask him practically any question you want.
"If you're unhappy about something, we will listen to you and put it into the policy committee at number 10 - we feed all feedback to the policy committee."

I think it's about time we got money out of politics and I will include the trade unions in that. It is wrong that certain groups and individuals can have influence over democratically elected officials.

Cameron himself predicted that lobbying would be the next political scandal and he has proved this himself. Cameron is creating a perception of the Conservative party rightly or wrongly, that the look out only for the rich.

The thing is all parties are at it. Labour had it's fair share of dodgy donors. The problem is having lobbying groups who can buy influence over our elected officials. It's one of the reasons Politicians never keep to their promises. Once they get the reign s of power they have to think about pleasing the donors to their campaigns, more than the saps that voted for them.

Taking bribes at Camerons level is nothing short of treason and if the legal system won't do the job then the public will need to do it for themselves.

99% of politicains are on the take and thats why the banks and corporations are pissing on everyone and we are being forced into a war with Iran and then pakistan, then maybe Russia.

Two guys got four years jail for saying the wrong things on facebook so lets see a jusdice system that does not have one law for the rich and one for the poor else we are going nowhere.

What are you men or mice.

CMC's Peter Cruddas - The rags-to-riches rise of a likeable billionaire


His idea has been so successful that, in April, the Sunday Times of London ranked Cruddas as the richest man in what is called "The City" - London's financial district - with a net worth of more than a billion pounds (about $2.12 billion Canadian).


Get ready for tax payer funded political parties

Some more news on the "gravy train" that is British politics.

MPs' expenses receipts should not be shown to the public, Westminster's new standards watchdog has ruled.


The decision means that the kind of documents which triggered the 2009 expenses scandal will in future be kept secret.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA), created to clean up Parliament in the wake of the scandal, said that publishing receipts would be expensive and was not required by law.



Martin Bell, the former independent MP, said: "MPs should not make expenses claims that they cannot justify in public. IPSA are in danger of become as much a creature of the House of Commons as the old Fees Office was."


So no more knowing how much your MP is taking in expenses. These details will be kept secret from the public, for your best interests.

He should not be able to get away with just a resignation, he should face a criminal investigation and prosecution also.

This practise has been going on since Ancient Greece. All of a sudden it's news?

And it's hilarious to see the other parties putting in their 2 cents - like they haven't all been caught red-handed themselves in recent years! Hypocrites.

Personally, I don't care in the least.

This was practised for a very long time, it is known as corrupt politics, politicians call it politics.

The Babylonians and Egyptians did this

so did the Romans and the Ummayed and Abbassids Caliphates

and so did the British empire and the USA when they sold out to Zionism

So do all the Mafioso and gangsters, they call it favour.

It is more like bribing, and if we do consider it bribing, then it happens in every level of our society.

this is corrupt society

Yeah nothing new here! It's always been happening and always will! Well just as long as we give the monopoly of the use of force to a select few!

When are we going to learn? The system will never be rid of corruption! Even if they had tax payer funded parties! What stops them having secret meetings and taking brown envelopes? We're dealing with criminals here!

Who's up for making a citizens arrest?
