Party Funding

Just read something totally astonishing on the BBC website from Cambridge's very own MP:

The Lib Dems said the bill would not stop wealthy donors from "deluging" money into key constituencies and would not offer a "fair solution" to Labour's trade union funding link.
"We don't need tinkering, we need comprehensive reform," said its spokesman David Howarth.

When he mentions wealthy donors, will he be explaining about the crook that funded the Liberal Democrats to the tune of £2.4m at the last election when he was elected, or for that matter, how much of the huge amount of money that was targetted on his campaign in Cambridge can be attributed to that source. Don't know how much if any ended up in Cambridge (directly or indirectly), but would be interested to find out...
