Transparency International UK research based on the Electoral Commission’s register of donations shows, for the first time, the scale of donations from individuals who were appointed to the House of Lords after having donated large amounts of money to political parties and politicians.

Several incidents in the past week demonstrate the problems that UK politics has with lobbying, conflicts of interest and the revolving door. What will it take for the UK’s political class to reform?

Corruption in the UK is increasing according to the world’s largest public opinion survey on corruption from Transparency International, with survey participants identifying the media as the most corrupt sector, closely followed by political parties.
