+++ Wintertons Standing Down +++

Sir Nicholas and Lady Winterton are retiring to “pass the baton to a younger person”.  Let us not forget that they were found to have broken Commons rules in a critical report by Parliamentary Standards Commissioner John Lyon last year.  Guido covered it at length here.

After paying off the mortgage on their Belgravia flat, the troughing couple transferred the £700,000 property to a family trust controlled by their children, and then charged the rent on it to parliamentary allowances.  A scam that netted the family trust some £120,000.  It was called “indefensible” by Cameron at the time.  They paid back not a single penny.
