..SDLP's support for party donor secrecy contradicts a personal pledge by Margaret Ritchie just before she became party leader.
Ms Ritchie stated earlier this year: “I believe that the time has come for the public to know who exactly provides the financial fuel that keeps party political |machines in operation.”
She also told party members the SDLP would make donation details public within weeks of her becoming leader.
That has not happened and instead the party is now pressing for the secrecy arrangements to be retained...source

I believe there should be immediate donation transparency so hopefully as much of the corruption can be exposed before the parties have a chance to clean up their act. The SDLP sicken me with their doublespeak and lies!!!

SDLP are scumbags ? Do not think so ,mainly honourable folk who do their best for their community and try to reach out to Protestant community .At grassroots level their Councillors are generally held in high esteem by Protestants due to their work and fair minded approach.Do not agree with their policies as a Unionist but respect their approach .SDLP compared to SF ,hmmmmm,32 CSM ,no contest .

I thought the Shinners were financed by the banks, small oil and the tobacco industry. Bit like the GOP in the US.

Are you denying Irish terrorists have made money from those things?
