Media ups its game with improved donation reporting

The latest round of election donations published by the Electoral Commission have seen a much more accurate set of media reports than previous figures.

As I’d previously pointed out the figures published by the Electoral Commission are far from comprehensive as they exclude small donations and also all donations, of any size, given directly to candidates. However the media reports have previously treated the figures for declarable donations given to parties as if they were actual donation totals.

This time round though, helped by the Commission making its news release (even) clearer, the media has mostly got it right. Who knows, a journalist or two may even have read this site and been influenced too…
