The Other Money Race

I'm not sure what this tells us, but across the Atlantic, there's also a big difference between the money being raised by the two major parties:

The huge disparity in finances between the Conservatives and Labour is laid bare with the publication of their accounts for 2006 yesterday by the Electoral Commission.

The Conservatives disclose donations running at four times the rate to Labour since David Cameron became leader, their first surplus since 2001, and a big increase in staffing at Tory headquarters.

Are all the "out" parties thriving during this war? Or is this just a coincidence?
