Loans and New Labour Government
The allegations so far about Funding and Government are perhaps not as extreme as that which implied that as a consequence of a Million Pound loan the government oddly decided not to ban adverts for smoking at Formula One Races.
The Bernie Ecclestone Million Pound Loan involved a payment which achieved lobbying access and as a consequence a change in the law.
If people are getting planning appeal decisions going their way and baronets as a consequence of similar loans then it is only really part of a trend. I was always quite surprised that Labour got away with the situation about F1. Still it in the end depends on the views of the voters. I think they are likely to be more concerned about the fact that the government is a disaster on a number of fronts than its continuing and worsening slease.
