DEMOCRACY – REFERENDA – 10 January 2000

Dr Julian Lewis: I was intrigued by the Home Secretary's comment that there would be individual spending limits on individual pressure groups. As someone who used to run advocacy pressure groups, I know that, under that regime, I would immediately split my group into two, three or four groups to get around the restriction. Does not that mean that his provisions are completely naive and meaningless?
