Wizard Idea.

"MILLIONAIRE Harry Potter author JK Rowling has given a £1 million donation to the Labour Party, the party announced today. The donation comes as a major boost to the cash-strapped party and its leader Gordon Brown as the annual Labour conference starts in Manchester. Rowling, whose fortune was estimated at £560 million in this year's Sunday Times Rich List, is known to be a personal friend of Mr Brown and his wife Sarah. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: "I am delighted that JK Rowling, who is one of the world's greatest ever authors, has made such a generous donation. "I thank her for supporting the Labour Party and our values of social justice and opportunity for all."

But the People's Party is still in debt to the tune of an estimated £17 million.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to write a cheque for one million pounds as a political donation?
