WHAT DOES THAT MONEY BUY?

Would a bank give a political party $18,000,000 over ten years and not expect a return on that investment? What about big property developers, or mining companies?

Yeah, we think it smells a little fishy too. We’ll continue to dive into these numbers over the next few weeks and let you know exactly what their return on investment has been. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, please take a read of our plan to clean up politics.
