Does this article conflate two different things?[edit]

On the one hand, we have something that seems perfectly honorable for a politician to do: put his or her own money into a blind trust so as to avoid particular conflict of interest in legislative matters which might impact different investments differentially.

On the other hand, in the UK discussion, we seem to have something that seems questionable - a fund which pays politicians but for which no one (not even the politicians?) knows who the contributors to the fund are.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 19:37, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Actually this should be separated and written with a more complete, and honest description. This is also not written in required Wikipedic format. (talk) 13:58, 4 July 2012 (UTC) Seriously?
