Herald journalist and SNP cheerleader Iain Macwhirter said the following in his column about party donations on 14/01/08.
"They, (Labour) are also morally uneasy because they know that business-men aren't stupid. They haven't become rich by throwing money around. Donating to politicians is all about influence, about buying into the inner circles of decision making"
I wrote with this simple question to the Herald, does Iain Macwhirter include Tom Farmer and Brian Souter or is he referring to Labour donors only ?
I wrote on the 16/01/08 and nothing has been printed. I think it's a pretty valid question but the mighty Herald seems to be afraid of it, is it any wonder that many people consider this paper a busted flush, what should we make of it ?
