I agree - no money should come from interest groups to political parties. It's buying influence plain and simple. Vested interests don't donate for nothing. Gillard did attempt to introduce such a system. The libs withdrew their support.

Unfortunately, it was yet another policy that was poorly communicated policy by the Gillard but also sadly an opportunity missed. Not sure if I agree with banning developers wholesale from politics to counter corruption. Seems a bit discriminatory to me. What's to stop them putting in a stooge? It does highlight the low regard that developers are held in though. :o
