Conservative MP for Woking votes to water down sleaze rules

November 3, 2021 9:53 PM

One Rule for them Owen Patterson and Boris Johnson

There was a hugely significant vote in Parliament today in which Woking's Tory MP voted to water down rules for dealing with MP sleaze and corruption.

Will Forster, Lib Dem Spokesperson for Woking, said:

"I think it is shameful that our local Conservative MP voted to water down rules aimed at preventing political sleaze. Jonathan Lord's constituents deserve better than this stitch up that is dragging our politics through the mud."

"We have already seen this Government wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers' money, from dodgy covid contracts to the refurbishment of Boris Johnson's flat. Tough rules and independent scrutiny are vital to prevent yet more sleaze scandals that end up with more public money being wasted."
