Tory leader David Cameron is complaining that the Labour government loves up to sleazy parliamentary lobbyists. And yes, that’s true.
But Cameron leads a shadow cabinet where six of his
frontbench members are employed by public affairs or public relations firms.
And Cameron’s former aide, who had to quit over the expenses scandal, is to become a lobbyist.
A further 21 Tory candidates standing at the next election are lobbyists or corporate spin doctors.
