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…

    One of the Tory grandees as chairman of the party would get donations and if he thought they could damage the party would return them, as he was whilst an old duffer at least he had the experience to realise that donations could come with strings attached or potential embarrassment to the party inthe future.

    None of the highly paid MP’s have the balls to really have a go at the minature menace for this, he knows he can get away with it.

    There’s no real mechanism to suspend the speaker over such claims as he will simply lie and which of the chinless wonders (i.e any MP’s) will do anything, even say anything in public???

    Where are the TV reports about this?

    I confess to being a little confused. I was under the impression that the Speaker was unopposed, by tradition, at elections. That being the case, why would he accept a donation on behalf of his “election campaign”. To what use, exactly, will this money be put?

    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).

    A few years ago a collection of Oil Companies (is there a collective noun for them?) said to Mbasogo that they would like to make a programme to wipe out Malaria on the island of Bioko since it was affecting not only the indigenous population but also the oil workers, and that they were prepared to spend about $10 million to do it. Mbasogo said fine, and here is the Swiss bank account for the $10 million.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
