Is it ok for ex-Ministers to work for Chinese? They think so

“The Mail on Sunday leads with what it calls the “political storm” caused by the secret filming of three ex-Tory ministers by Channel Four’s Dispatches programme.

An undercover reporter posed as a representative of Chinese millionaires, offering to pay for advice from Andrew Lansley, Andrew Mitchell, and Peter Lilley about how to make money from Brexit.

All three have denied any wrongdoing, with Mr Lilley calling it “a tawdry attempt at entrapment.”

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, ex-chief whip Andrew Mitchell has strenuously denied any wrongdoing, saying he was the victim of “attempted entrapment” and is “totally innocent”, and that it is not against parliamentary rules for an MP to have a second job.”
