Watching Newsnight just now on Labour/LibDem cross-dressing â€œProgressiveâ€ (Lord) Matthew Oakeshott I recalled that Ealing Central and Acton Labour candidate Rupa Huq is a beneficiary of Oakeshottâ€™s generosity. He shelled out Â£10,000 on Christmas Eve to her campaign. A nice Christmas present.
Man of the people Oakeshott likes to do his property business out of offices in St James. Not quite sure how that works. I wonder what LibDem candidate Jon Ball thinks of Oakeshottâ€™s â€œprogressive allianceâ€. Not much I suspect as he is not included.
A picture is emerging of Rupa Huq’s donors. A multi-millionaire property man. A jet-setting millionaire influencer. An accountant who gives through his company rather than use his own cash to make it tax deductible.
Huq’s donors don’t look attractive at all.
