“The Conservative Party made more money in 2017 from dead people than it did from its living members, as the Labour Party surged ahead in fundraising.
The party earned £835,000 last year from its membership, but brought in £1.7m from “legacies”.

Figures published by the Electoral Commission on Tuesday showed Labour had raked in £16.2m in membership fees. …”
