  • Description: Two recent developments - the emergence and growth of large personal contributions, and the development of commercial approaches to party fundraising - suggest a new era of political finance may be upon us. Both open new ways of gaining political influence and two principal concerns are whether donations should be publicly disclosed and whether they are desirable for the democratic health of political parties. In general, party donations and finance suggest there is a link between these and a party's political prospects. Explores recent change in the funding of the Conservative and Labour parties and suggests the case for comprehensive state funding of political parties is becoming stronger.
