Expensive Tastes

The British Conservative Party is offering major donors the "opportunity to discuss the party's PR strategy" in the run up to the 2010 general election. As part of its fundraising strategy, donors which contribute over £50,000 a year become members of the Leader's Group. An email leaked to PR Week reveals that Leader's Group members are offered the option of having lunch with Conservative Party leader, David Cameron, following Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons. PR Week reports that "private presentations with senior advisers are available to members of both the Leader's Group and the £25,000-a-year Treasurer's Group. Other donor clubs include the City & Entrepreneurs Forum (£2,000), the Front Bench Club (£5,000) and the Number 10 Club (£10,000)."
