Despite Ed Miliband condemning the Conservatives as “the party of Mayfair hedge funds”, Labour happily and hypocritically accepted £591,800 from Mayfair hedge fund boss Martin Taylor between 2012 and 2015. Of his donation, the Nevsky Capital chief and King’s College graduate commented: “There is no mystery. This ‘Martin Taylor’ is me. I am a born and bred Londoner, who also happens to be a hedge fund manager. And I am proud to support the Labour Party… Everyone should contribute to society and that those who are lucky enough to earn a lot should contribute more”. He is bizarrely a supporter of the ‘Mansion Tax’ and a reversal of tax cuts for the wealthiest.
