At openDemocracy we spend a lot of time investigating where the funding of political parties comes from. We’ve spent years uncovering the dark money making its way into the political system and leading the fight to clean-up UK politics.

From delving into the shadowy world of ‘unincorporated associations’ to analysing the second jobs of senior politicians, we've been crunching the numbers and exposing undeclared roles.

The following quiz is based on just some of our recent investigations. Enjoy!

But would better transparency give us better government? And how can we get it?
