(not satire – it’s the Tories!)
Tory MP for Bristol North West Charlotte Leslie took cash from the owner of a private company and then raised several questions in parliament on a matter of concern to him.
Leslie is now being investigated by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards over the donations.
Here’s the full story from the Bristol Post:
Last year the right-wing Spectator magazine named Leslie ‘Backbencher of the Year‘ in recognition of her parliamentary work on accountability and whistleblowing in the NHS.
Never mind the NHS. With MPs like Leslie, looks like it’s the House of Commons that needs more accountability and whistleblowing.
