Sally’s Pass Pal Claimed to be ‘Agent’ and ‘Miliband Adviser’
Mystery Over Farah Sasson’s Donation and Access Grows

The row over Bercow’s donation/pass mystery is escalating. Tory MP Simon Burns has weighed in:

“I do not quite see why at the request of the wife of the Speaker a friend should be given a pass to the House of Commons – in that they are not usually given to MPs’ friends. It makes it look rather difficult for the Speaker when he then receives a rather nice cheque for his election campaign – and leaves him open to criticism and questions.”

David Morris MP tells Guido this morning that Farah Sassoon introduced herself to him on the Commons Terrace as ‘an adviser to Ed Miliband’ saying she advised the Labour leader ‘on all sorts of things’. Another Tory MP, speaking on the condition of anonymity for now, says that on a separate occasion Ms Sassoon claimed to be Sally Bercow’s agent. If this is true it adds a rather unsavoury commercial angle to why she has been allowed unfettered access to Parliamentary estate. Who is this mysterious character, and to what end is she really using this pass?

Whether she’s a friend, a Labour adviser, or Sally’s agent , the line from the Speaker that this is all dandy does not hold water. Crucially, Bercow’s spokesman dodged the question of whether proper advice was sought before he accepted a donation from this mysterious business woman. Even if there is an innocent explanation, as an example to all MPs, the Speaker must be whiter than white. Yet each day brings new questions…

      Good mornin me old matey. Geedes if she was a Teddy ‘band advisor, surely Teddy would have issued the HoC pass, so it’s a good chance that she has told at least one porky. She should be down as a lobbyist shouldn’t she, she is tying to get business for her company or some other company but without revealing she is an actual lobbyist. The whole system of lobbying should be revised, the whole thing has just become a farce.

    So, let me get this straight, the Speaker is a Tory MP who has given his wife’s mate a pass to act as an adviser to the Labour party. Then he accepts a donation from the same woman to fund his own campaign.
    I wonder if this “Milliband adviser” declared to Millliband that she’s a donator to the re-election fund of a Tory MP.
    I also wonder if the Tory party commends one of it’s MP’s giving a “Milliband adviser” a pass at the request of his left wing wife. I was going to say, “free pass” but it seems it wasn’t entirely free.
    If this woman has been declaring herself an Advisor to Milliband and then funds The Speaker then I cannot see how the Speaker can stay in office. He’s either incompetent or corrupt (or both).
