Party funding

Surprise, surprise!  Some politicians are already using the current political donations scandal (to the Labour Party this time) to advocate more party funding by us taxpayers.  The argument seems to be that political parties are unable to raise honestly and legally as much money as they want, so taxpayers must find the money for them.  Of course, this could be applied to others who have the same problem, such as burglars, muggers, pickpockets and confidence tricksters.  Perhaps it would reduce crime if we gave them all taxpayers' money.
