“With Christmas coming, it’s time for Gordon to show he’s a Santa, not a Scrooge,” said Nicole Adams, art director at Bluefrog, who organised the protest. “By handing over the money, he can set a great example for all of us.
“By giving away just a little of what we have, we can all make a difference. And the way we see it, Gordon’s got more than £600,000 burning a hole in his pocket.”
Abrahams, a property-developer and member of the Labour Party, donated the cash anonymously through third parties. Brown has since started an internal inquiry into his party’s funding and prompted the Electoral Commission to call in the police.
