New Blood

A new political party is being mooted.

Jolly good. We need fresh blood in politics. What line will it be pushing?

A progressive centrist line.

Excellent. Are they asking for subscriptions?

Not yet.

So how will they get off the ground? You can't get anywhere in politics without money.

Don't worry. They have backers prepared to give them £50 million.

What the....! So who are these donors?

That's not entirely clear.

But rich people obviously. People with £50 million to spare.

Goes without saying.

So it'll be a rich person's party, pursuing policies that please the rich. Just like all the others.

Hmmmm

Anyone well-known connected with it?

Tony Blair seems keen.

Nuff said.
