Fascinating stuff. Mr Abrahams (now £650,000) appeared on the Today programme at 7.10 to explain that
a) he'd no idea that funding under other people's names was illegal until last Friday
b) some donations had been rejected because you couldn't fund under other people's names. Have to check the audio when the BBC put it up to find his exact phrasing.
The interviewer (Naughtie ?) didn't really bite on this - I think he asked one question of the "did it not occur to you ?" type and left it at that. Imagine if that had been a Tory donor.
