(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)
A couple of weeks ago it was reported that top Liberal Democrat Party donors Sudhir and and his son Bhanu Choudhrie have been arrested for fraud.
But it has never been clearly explained just why two Indian business men would give as much as £1.26 million to the party – including a £60,000 donation to Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes.
However, all becomes clear when we notice one of the Choudhrie’s main business interests is a company called Alpha Healthcare – which has already benefited and is set to benefit even more from the coalition’s break-up and sell-off of the NHS.
That’s on top of the fact that one in ten Lib Dem peers in the House of Lords have connections with private healthcare companies which are benefiting from the healthcare sell-off.
As usual in politics – if you want to know anything about policy – just follow the money.
