Doing the numbers

A lot of people will be upset that Labour’s lax security has allowed easy access to their names, addresses and donations to the party.

The Party should be very concerned not just about that but also about the numbers which Whaleoil found on their website.

Just 18,ooo people on the database  isn’t many for what’s supposed to be one of only two major parties in the country.

Only $11,831.50 received online   indicates a lack of financial support. Even if it’s made up in small donations, it doesn’t appear many people are prepared to support this fundraising effort.

It is possible that they have another database with many more supporters and other more profitable fundraising efforts but why would they be secure when so much else wasn’t?

    Did National feel ‘honour-bound’ to take that insecure information and arrange for it to fall into the hands of someone who would use it to attack the Labour Party?
    I use the term ‘honour’ very, very loosely here.

    Repeating something false doesn’t make it true Robert, nor is it honourable to do so.

    With Matt and Unite defecting to Hone and his band of deadbeats Labour cash flow is going to be further depleted.

    I’ve stored it for future reference.
