Which parties get big donations, who is paying, and why? Find out more here.

A fascinating insight into party funding in the UK. Compared with the New Labour era, the Conservatives have a big lead over Labour when it comes to large individual donations. The biggest single donation in the last decade went to the Liberal Democrats in 2019. It's very interesting to see who's paying and how much, but it's just as interesting to consider what they might hope to get in return.
