Emma Reynolds Lobbyist Merry-Go-Round

Labour Shadow Europe Minister Emma Reynolds doesn’t tend to shout from the rooftops about her previous career. Reynolds gave up her job spinning for lobbyists Cogitamus when she won her seat, just as her old firm were lobbying on behalf of the Campaign for Better Transport. As Guido reported in yesterday’s Sun column, the campaign focussed on lobbying for:

“co-operatives and mutuals to play a pivotal role in providing transport services.”

Guido is sure it was pure coincidence when Reynolds then stood up in Parliament and asked:

“will the Government consider changing it in their review to allow mutuals and co-operatives to bid for future franchises?”

Almost word-for-word identical…

      She could make all transport affordable and cut the very real cost burden, by advocating a reduction of tax on fuel, from it’s obscene 80% level.

      Will she ‘care’ enough to do that? You can bet your life she wouldn’t

        She’s in the pay of those who have their own agenda.
        Rather than looking after the constituents that elected her.

    There is definitely something of the dark about this person.

    I suspect that a criminal offence hads been committed and Guido will not be slow when it comes to seeing justice done.

    Have we got a date for trial against that Perry person yet?

    This Emma Reynolds type is just what you dont want in a Parliamentary democracy.

    She comes over all sweet and coy at Election times but then she changes.
