Dave Osler has uncovered an interesting nugget about donations to the Conservative Party:
How interesting to learn from the Electoral Commission website that an individual by the name Andreas Heeschen has donated Â£58,000 to the Conservative Party over the last year.
Thatâ€™ll be the bloke who nows owns Heckler & Koch, manufacturer of the fine submachine guns and assault rifles that aficionados believe to be the finest in the world. Same old Tories, eh?
The image is by Chris Paul, who has more and points out that Andreas Heeschen’s company plans to produce “almost a million XM8s [assault rifle] per annum” by 2012. Charming. Just the sort of people the Tories traditionally liked anyway, right?
