Overlooked this yesterday...the most recent stats from the Electoral Commission on how much each party has raked in from donations between July and September.
Nine political parties registered in Great Britain reported accepting a total of just over £7m in that time. That’s £878,772 less during the third quarter of 2012 compared with the second.
The biggest winner for once was...Labour which took £3,011,858. The Conservatives took £2,613,496 and the Liberal Democrats, £578,087.
Meanwhile the total amount of outstanding loans to political parties as at 30 September 2012 was £14,285,276.
