Tory Deputy Chairman Working Part-Time For Remain Campaign

Newsnight reports that David Cameron aide and Tory deputy chairman Stephen Gilbert is doing two days work a week at Populus, the official pollsters of the BSE campaign. Despite CCHQ’s claim of neutrality during the referendum, they seem to be allowing Gilbert to remain in his post as Tory deputy chairman in charge of campaigning, while he also works part-time for the Remain campaign’s pollsters. Newsnight say his work at Populus will specifically be working for BSE. Gilbert is still listed as a Conservative Party board member on their website, and Guido understands he still has his nameplate on his office in 4 Matthew Parker Street, which is Grant Shapps’ old office. He also has a CCHQ security pass. How can the Tories claim to be neutral when their own deputy chairman is openly working for the Remainers?
