Wasting our money to deceive us

Dear Sir,

My brother living in Johannesburg often complains to me about a corrupt Government in that country.
I have to tell him that it is the same here. The union Unite, which is currently engaged in trashing travel plans for all of us, has given £11 million pounds to the Labour Party in recent years. That comes from the £18 million pounds given to them by Government for "training".

Despite this largesse, the Labour Party is short of funds. It cannot afford to fight the General Election campaign that must happen in the next three months.So the Government is splashing out on "public service" advertising. The limit for spending by a political party in a General Election is £19 million pounds. In February alone, the Government spent £34 million pounds on "public service" advertising.

Put shortly, your money taken from you in taxes is being used in an attempt to pull the wool over your eyes.

Don't fall for it. It's time for change.

Yours sincerely,

James Strachan
