    The allegation an mp received a large donation to introduce legislation is a serious one. About the most serious that could be made

    CC is talking “property rites” very right wing in the context of urban settings where they can (often ) be taken to mean “nothing to do with you”, i.e “your city is your own piece of property” (only) , the public wish to influence the urban form doesn’t come into it?
    When accused (or near enough) counter charge.
    The problem with our parliamentary system is politicians need funding. So when a poor party gets some money the other parties (who don’t? accept donations with a wind blowing them in a certain direction) ask: “where did you get that money!!??
