Labour donor John Mills on 'hypocritical' critics

There will not be any political donors if critics continue to take a "hypocritical stance" said John Mills who has given £1.65m in shares to Labour.

The businessman told the BBC: "If everybody's going to take this terribly hypocritical stance which I think they did when anybody makes a reasonably-sized donation then you're not going to finish up with any more donors."

Asked who he thought had behaved hypocritically he said: "I think apart from anything else, some of the people in both the press and the House of Commons have taken a fairly hypocritical stance on this."
