John Edwards gets really expensive $400 haircuts and charges them to his election campaign for US president. Does that count as outrageous? Then again, a guy has to look good...

It is interesting...well i find it so.... there is much debate at the moment about whether UK political parties should be publicly funded - and whether there should be a cap of individual donations.

I know there are questions surrounding union bloc voting, but in terms of finance, there is a world of difference between union support from many people, and an individual multi-millionaire supporting a party, which the tories rely on.

Er, and Labour doesnt?
Not that Im pro-tory (I am anti-Blair, but thats not the same thing), but Labour has been just as corrupt with regards to individual's donations, hence all the talk of Tony's Cronies - "Here's a million, where's my peerage?".
