Bryant’s Undeclared Billionaire’s Bung

Section 72 of the Common’s Declaration of Members’ Interests states that “any relevant financial interest or benefit of whatever nature, whether direct or indirect, should be declared in debate, or other proceeding.” Section 74 says that it “is the responsibility of the Member, having regard to the rules of the House, to judge whether a financial interest is sufficiently relevant to a particular debate, proceeding, meeting or other activity to require a declaration.”

As head of the All Party Group on Russia you should would expect Chris Bryant to raise Russian issues more than most, and he has been one of the most vocal Putin critics. He even testified against Hancock’s suspected spy lover.

However since October Bryant has declared nearly £14,000 in payments from the Independent newspaper owned by Russian oligarch and fellow Putin critic, Alexander Lebedev. Since the billionaire signed Chris up, he has mentioned Russia on dozens of occasions in the House without a single declaration required in the rules above. Given his ongoing quest for strict probity in public office, it’s odd that he hasn’t mentioned this…

Bryant argued to Guido that the Indy is technically owned by a British citizen (Lebedev Jr,) but this is extremely disingenuous given that bachelor Evgeny only recently got British citizenship. A technicality that doesn’t alter the fact that Bryant is paid thousands by a Russian with political pretensions and ambitions…

        He only left Wales because he was meeting Offa’s Dyke.

        He has only been an MP for 10 years and was just a lowly cabinet minister when these new declaration rules were introduced, so he can’t possibly have known they applied to him.

        As Ed Miliband said when the Unions fixed his leadership “I will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until I am back in No. 10″. None of that “SERVANT OF THE PEOPLE” Mandy/Blairite lip service bollocks; Miliband, Livingstone and Bryant and their ilk just want the power and they don’t care who or what they break on the way, including the quaint niceties of House etiquette

    A Certain Politician Mentioned In A Certain Blog says:

    Right now a certain news organisation is sitting on a story about a certain blog run by a certain Daddy and his certain little Twink who, whilst in their cups, have been known to make overtures of an amorous nature to certain politicians only to be rebuffed, whereupon they write bollocks about certain politicians’ outside sources of income. Whether this story is true or not, I have no idea. It doesn’t really matter anyway, as it is certain politicians’ word against a certain blogger’s and his sidekick’s word, and can never really be confirmed or denied conclusively. In the meantime the certain blogger would as a practical matter have to tread lightly lest the story break unless he really wanted a fight, whereupon he would be told by counsel to avoid all mention of certain politicians in any context as any libel action would be working its way through the legal process. A settlement paid by certain politicians’ publisher friends would bind the certain blogger to secrecy about its terms; the terms might include never mentioning certain politicians again. I mention no names.
