Labour Party Donors - Fun With Statistics

Number of peers in UK House of Lords = 1,200

Population of UK = 60,000,000

Odds of being UK peer = 1:60,000

Odds of being one of the private individuals who have donated more than 250,000 GBP to the Labour Party since 2001 = 1:10,000,000

Odds of being a member of the House of Lords AND one of the private individuals who have donated more than 250,000 GBP to the Labour Party since 2001 = 1:600,000,000,000

    * Lord Sainsbury
    * Lord Paul Hamlyn
