    Lord Owen makes donation to Labour.

    Co-founder and former leader of the SDP, Lord Owen, has given money to Labour, having hailed its "brave and bold" change to its links with the unions.

    David Owen, a former Labour cabinet minister, made the announcement after the party backed Ed Miliband's reforms.

    He said he had given up his status as a crossbench peer to give "over £7,500" but would remain an independent.

    When a man of his status puts money to the Labour cause I am sure that the rest of the centre-left will sit up and pay attention.

    The SDP ? what's that ?

    Isn't that the defunct party that was put together by the "gang of four" ?

    Here's what I found about them:

    Founded - 26 March 1981[1]
    Dissolved - 3 March 1988
    Split from Labour Party
    Merged into  Liberal Democrats
    Ideology - Centrism, Social liberalism
    National affiliation - SDP–Liberal Alliance

    Yes Zath' you are right about that, but even if Lord Owen is not a mainstream politician any more he is still a very influential and respected person.
