WATCH: Boris Accuses Labour of Promising to Repeal Lobbying Act

Following Guido’s story this morning which pointed out Labour’s manifesto promise to repeal the 2014 Lobbying Act, Boris put the awkward point directly to Starmer during today’s PMQs. Clearly another happy reader. You’re either in front of Guido, or you’re behind…

Boris: “We Need to Understand What’s Been Going On” with Cameron Lobbying Probe

Speaking in a pooled media interview today, Boris Johnson commented on his ordering of an inquiry into David Cameron’s lobbying activities with Greensill Capital:

“I have asked Nigel Boardman to have a look at this whole issue of supply chain finance and given him pretty much carte blanche to ask anybody whatever he needs to find out… I want him to have the maximum possible access so we can understand exactly what has happened, and that will of course be presented to Parliament in due course.”

Pressed on whether he’d ordered the inquiry to ‘rough up‘ his former boss, the PM simply said “I think people have just got questions that they need to satisfy – including me – about how this supply chain finance stuff is meant to work.” Guido has his suspicions…

Boris Authorises Probe into Dave’s Lobbying

Boris Johnson has ordered an independent review into Greensill Capital as a result of the David Cameron lobbying controversy. Nigel Boardman of Slaughter and May will lead the investigation into the now-collapsed finance firm’s activities in government and the role of its founder, Lex Greensill. The Whitehall review will look at how government contracts were secured by Greensill Capital and the role of the former PM in securing them. Cameron will not be chillaxed about this move by his old rival Boris, though he will be reassured that Boardman is the son of a Tory peer and already an adviser to the government. So Dave won’t be sweating too much…

Through the Keyhole: Boris’s Pet-Friendly Oxfordshire Pad Yours for £4,250-a-Month

With renovations on the Downing Street residence complete, Boris has now decided to make adjustments to his property portfolio by listing his cosy four-bedroom Oxfordshire cottage on the rental market for just £4,250 a month. Featuring a heated swimming pool and a tennis court, Guido takes you through the keyhole of this gorgeous Grade-II listed rural home that includes sweeping countryside views, a ‘garden room’ annexe (whatever that is), and mahogany flooring throughout the property. Although renters beware: it does not include furniture…

Unfurnished though it may be, the Prime Minister / landlord has sweetened the deal by allowing animals onto the property, with the listing showing that potential tenants with pets will be ‘considered’… 

Chequers obviously makes it surplus to needs for now…
