Tories are quite happy to accept money from any rich bastard, including Russian oligarchs. It says a lot about their standards.
(not satire – it’s the Tories!)
A governing UK political party being bankrolled by Russian oligarchs isn’t something the British electorate – or MI5 – would be all that keen on I’d imagine.
So I’m not surprised the Tories have been trying desperately to hide the identities of the people who attended their fundraising dinner last year.
That’s because – after Brits – Russians were the most representative nationality at the fundraising event.
According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the list of ultra-rich Russians and eastern Europeans who attended the party fundraiser included:
Alexander Temerko (Russia)
Tatanya Korsakova (Russia)
Andrei Borodin (Russia)
Vasily Shestakov (Russia)
Alexander Kuznetsov (Russia)
Alex Nekrassov (Russia)
Andrei Kliamko (Belarus)
Darko Horvat (Slovenia)
Obviously, it’s always possible that all those dodgy Russians who are handing over their millions to one of our governing parties won’t be expecting anything in return for their beneficence.
