Donor transparency

Published 15/04/2008

I agree with Alliance leader David Ford concerning disclosure of political donations.

I find it unreasonable and difficult to fathom the reasoning behind the decision of the NIO not to reveal donations and their sources as soon as possible.

Surely the public deserves to have a more transparent system in operation where they can see not only the amount of the donation but who made it, and then be able to judge how genuine the donation is or if it was made for ulterior motives.

Why not ask Minister of Finance Peter Robinson to give us a politician's viewpoint?
