Hacked Off Break Parliamentary Lobbying Rules

Who would have thought that Hacked Off, the lobbyists granted private access to Downing Street and given a sofa in Ed Miliband’s office during the crucial press regulation talks, could have possibly broken parliamentary lobbying rules? John Dickinson-Lilley, Hacked Off’s top lobbyist, failed to declare his position in the register of interests. Lord Low, who sponsors him for a pass, tellingly says “he has a pass courtesy of me but doesn’t work for me”. 

Until yesterday the register of interests had Dickinson-Lilley down as an employee of the charity Sense, which he left last year to join Hugh and co. Yet for some reason forget to mention his new job. Hacked Off not being completely transparent? Shocker.
