Once again Labour getting fewer donations than Greens

For the second year in a row Labour has received fewer donations than the Greens. This shows how much trouble Labour is in when basically no one will donate to them. There’s money out there for left wing parties – but it is going to the Greens.

Total donations (over $1,500) in 2015 were:

  1. National $1,400,896
  2. Greens $407,978
  3. Labour $279.134
  4. ACT $162,067
  5. NZ First $79,620
  6. Conservatives $39,360 (plus loan of $99,000)
  7. Maori Party $28,085
  8. ALCP $1,492
  9. Internet Part $677

I understand Labour is so broke they are forcing their MPs to pay a levy to fund the likely Mt Roskill by-election.

Major donors are:

  1. National – Gallagher Group – $60,000
  2. Conservatives – Colin Craig – $39,300 (and $99,000 loan)
  3. ACT – Dame Jenny Gibbs – $33,589
  4. National – Adrian Burr – $27,350
  5. National – GMP Dairy – $25,338
  6. National – Garth Barfoot – $25,000
  7. ACT – Heather Anderson $24,448
