Hairy cares; well at least enough to have brought it to miner's attention.

Well, yes. But I'm not the one querying whether anyone cares. I've already commented. It is a statement of the bleeding obvious that I care, to some extent at least.

Do you think that directing your company to donate £18,000 is less supportive than a tweet saying "she is talking sense"?

Are the directors of this company party members?

The concern was raised partly because of the perceived melding of UKIP, a nationalist party, and Labour, a socialist party...
Apparently there is something about the combination that upsets people. :?

"Leave Labour*" statement:

"Labour Leave

Statement, re: UKIP donation
27 January 2017

During the EU referendum campaign, Labour Leave co-organised events with other groups in favour of Brexit. These were cross-party events and included representatives from Labour, the Conservatives and UKIP, as well as non-partisan organisations.

We sought clarity from the Electoral Commission to ensure we were compliant, and they advised us to pay our share of the cost in the form of a donation. This one-off payment to UKIP was solely our share of this cost. The figure covered the cost of venue hire, transport, accommodation and security for the events.

We believe that Labour is the only party that can create a brighter, fairer and more prosperous future for Britain."


*a sensible thing to do.
