Lord Ashcroft

I'm not a big fan of him.
His tax status is shrouded in mystery, but i'm not sure it really should be public knowledge, but then he's bank-rolling the party that will probably form the next government. So it probably should be transparent.
In the way that some criticise Labour for being funded by Union, the Tories' funding by Lord Ashcroft is more worrying. At least the Unions are transparent.

The article above slags him off, rightly. But going on about the poverty in Belize and his power and influence there didn't really grab me. Apparently he owns everything through some very shadowy businesses practices. Which I suppose is important in light of his support for, and bankrolling of, the Tories.
I don't like having a (soon to be) governing party so dependent on the monies of one man. He shouldn't have so much power
