- Club’s vice-chair, Karren Brady, is a Tory peer
- Co-owner David Sullivan called government ‘incompetent’
West Ham United used club money to make a £9,000 donation to the Conservative party last year. The donation was revealed by documents published by the Electoral Commission this week and was made on 26 September. The money was accepted by the Conservatives on 3 October, less than a month before Liz Truss was forced to resign as prime minister.
It is not the first time West Ham, whose vice-chair, Karren Brady, is a Tory peer, have given money to the Conservatives. Electoral Commission records show they made a donation of £12,500 in 2016.
