Labour Party fundraising

Fundraising ideas for Labour, let’s help a comrade out


Let’s face it, when it comes to fundraising the Labour party lack entrepreneurship  almost as badly as they lack funds. In an insincere gesture of cross-party cooperation I thought we could put our collective heads together to help our Labour Party comrades out.

I have a few product suggestions which I hope you will all add to in the comments.

Labour’s precarious financial position


The Labour party’s 100th birthday should be a time for celebration, but it isn’t because Labour are broke and they can’t expect to win a thing. Prof Nigel Haworth, the president, is the man who should be raising the money, as highlighted by Claire Trevett.

Haworth is a British-born “socialist” trade unionist forged under Margaret Thatcher.

Labour certainly have turned into Nigel No Mates, and getting money out of their own supporters may need a more aggressive touch, like this one from the Republican Party in the US:
