Many in the Labour Party camp believe the money is now tainted and should be returned due to Hester’s discriminatory beliefs and the threatening nature of his comments.

Hester suggested that simply sacking the pair won’t do, If we can get [the executive] being unprofessional we can get her sacked. It would be much better if she died,” he said.

Hester’s spokesperson insisted that the Tory donor attempted to apologize for his remarks by calling Abbott “twice” and making amends “for the hurt he caused her,” but her Labour colleagues feel the damage has already been done.
