Compass' funders

The latest begging letter from Gavin Hayes of Compass whinges that they "don’t have millionaire donors".

But er... didn't their Chair Neal Lawson sell his shares in the public affairs company he co-founded, LLM, in 2004 - did he really get less than £1m from that transaction? Or maybe he doesn't donate any of it to Compass?

I think it's more of a badge of pride than a whinge.

I've never seen the accounts (a bit like all the other factions then), but I would suggest that perhaps Compass are happy with Neal having worked full-time unpayed for a significant period.

The outcome speaks for itself; we certainly get noticed.
