Labour Accepted £12,000 From Major Polluter Drax

A large donation to the Labour Party from wood-burning giant Drax has raised concerns among campaigners over the sway of big carbon emitters over Parliament.

The payment from the former coal-fired power station was registered on September 12 last year, and published in December in the Electoral Commission register of political donations.

Labour has declined to comment on receipt of the donation. 

Opposition leader Keir Starmer has yet to articulate his party’s position on burning wood for electricity – or to clarify whether [pretend] Labour accepts donations from polluting companies.
