Never mind concerns over whether Ed Miliband seemed Prime Ministerial enough – the real reason the Conservatives won the 2015 general election is that they BOUGHT it.
The Tories splashed out more than £15 million on their campaign – more than Labour and the Liberal Democrats combined.
And now they have a majority, they are changing the law to restrict other parties’ funds, meaning they will have an even greater advantage at future elections.
Conservatives: The Party of Corruption.
The Tories splashed nearly £2.4million on election guru Lynton Crosby’s lobbying firm during the General Election campaign, figures revealed today.
The party lavished the cash on the controversial Australian’s company before he was knighted in the New Year honours.
Mr Crosby was widely hailed as being the mastermind behind David Cameron ‘s shock election triumph.
The Tories also spent £1.2million on Facebook advertising, the Electoral Commission stats showed.
The party spent almost £15.6million during the campaign – as much as Labour and the Lib Dems combined.
