UK dodgy-political-donor watch database canned

Like we need a list to find corruption

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A New Labour database designed to ferret out corrupt contributions to political parties has been canned.

The Co-ordinated Online Record of Electors (CORE) was meant to make it easier for parties to spot contributions from non-resident donors as well as to run the database and deal with queries.

The Coalition government claims the cancellation will save £11.4m that would have been spent on establishing the quango, as well as saving the government its projected annual running costs of £2.7m.

The job of spotting dodgy donors will now go to the Electoral Commission. It will respond to enquiries from parties: donors are required to be registered UK voters.
