Strange Jowell Movements

Among those walking through the Aye lobby as Labour voted to ban MPs from holding paid directorships and consultancies was Dame Tessa Jowell. So strongly does Tessa feel about MPs’ “double jobbing” at consultancy firms, that she is paid £1,000 an hour working for… Mentore Consulting. On their website Jowell’s services are advertised to clients: “she has a great commitment to the development of talent and sharing the lessons of experience”, “making a difference to the diversity of senior leadership”. Of course, any clampdown on outside earnings won’t affect Tessa because she’s standing down at the election. Leaving her free to tell colleagues: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
