It’s official, the Conservative Party receive twice more money from the dead than it does from the living

“Legacy payments” as they call it totalled £1.69m, while membership fees contributed only £835,000, according to the party’s 2017 accounts.

Among the bequests the party received was £582,358 from German-born Gerda Winder, who died aged 86 last year.

Labour raised £16.1m in income from its 550,000 plus members, up £1.8m from the year before.

Labour’s standard membership package costs £4.17 a month, compared with the Conservatives’ £2.09 a month. Both parties offer discounts to younger members and members of the armed forces.
