You donate to political parties just by being a taxpayer

All taxpayers donate to political parties

All taxpayers donate to political parties

Did you know you donate to political parties just by being a taxpayer?

From 30th April 2001 to 30th April 2014 you donated £45,047,859.70 to the Conservative Party via the tax system.

Similarly we have all donated £30,899,109.84 to the Labour party from 30th April 2001 to 30th April 2014 via the tax system.

Data sourced from the Electoral Commission.

Public funds are routinely given to political parties for various reasons.  When in opposition their rules allow them to receive short money which they use to commission reports in order to argue their points in Parliament.  When in Government they receive public funds for things such as ‘policy development grants’.
