Responses to the Cameron/Greensill scandal will show just how far British Conservatives & their client journalists have followed American Republicans & Fox News down the path to blatant & unapologetic corruption.
Important new revelations in Greensill scandal which looks worse & worse. Not just because of what it reveals about rancid cronyism but also our terrifying inability to hold anyone to account. No shame. No accountability. And seemingly no oppositionhttps://t.co/3RdLtZtKK0
Devastating story about David Cameron in today’s Sunday Times, alleging he sought to make money out of the wages of NHS staff coping with the pandemic, and the government tried hard to accommodate him. If true, surely the greatest ethical scandal in British political history pic.twitter.com/8vrQ6SL61U
I recall Sir John Major, educated Rutlish grammar, Wimbledon, saying when he left No 10 he got a lot of highly remunerative job offers he felt it would be inappropriate for a former PM to consider. If only @David_Cameron, educated Eton, had such class.
✅ Boris Johnson still won’t act on Northern Ireland ✅ No10 rewrote “independent” race report ✅ Tory donor funded anti-lockdown scientist who advised Johnson against locking down ✅ Cameron stood to gain £21m from lobbying
There’s another myth, those who argue that Mr Cameron is simply a “private citizen” and divorced from the public realm. Except as a fmr Prime Minister he claims substatial sums of public money to run his office (via the Public Duty Costs Allowance). https://t.co/gqcW75KzH8pic.twitter.com/np3hTpmh7e
Cameron needlessly called the referendum which led to Brexit, a great British disaster. Then he resigned, paving the way for Johnson. Then he teamed up with dodgy financier he had sponsored in No 10 & lobbied for him during COVID19 to make £60m
