WHY DO RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS GIVE £Ms TO TORY PARTY?

Philip Hammond has refused a plea by the widow of murdered Alexander Litvinenko for the Tories to pay back more than £820,000 donated by Russian oligarchs, insisting the cash is legitimate.

The Chancellor also denied the Kremlin is “laughing at us” over Britain’s response to the killing and the suspicion that Russia was also involved in the poisoning of double agent Sergei Skripal.

Marina Litvinenko called for the return of the Russian cash – given since Theresa May became Prime Minister – saying: “You need to be very careful who you are friends with.”

Friends ???

This is simply Cash For Influence.

The Tories have received more than £3m from Russian billionaires and lobbyists for Moscow since their return to government in 2010. No wonder Putin thinks he can get away with anything he fancies. We heard outrage about Corbyn meeting a diplomat who turned out to be a spy. But the story was mostly BS, the guy got nothing. What have the Tories handed out on exchange for £3m ??
