Boris and the Missing Fink

The plot thickens vis-à-vis so-called charitable trusts and links to Conservative Party donations.

You may remember our post last year about former Tory treasurer Peter Cruddas and the Mayors Fund for London

We now note that top donator and co-treasurer, Stanley Fink, is a member of the Benefactor’s Club at the Fund via his Barbara and Stanley Fink Foundation and also a Trustee

Stanley once owned a company, the Man Group,  with the infamous Colin Barrow of Westminster Council.

The shady lads were also, quite bizarrely, both patrons of the little-known Princess Margarita of Romania Trust

The most unusual aspect of this cosy Conservative set-up though is this:

The Barbara and Stanley Fink Foundation doesn’t appear to be registered in the U.K. and there’s no mention of it on the Charities Commission website

How very strange indeed…
