not only The Times which has got hold of the Priti Patel story,
the Daily Mail and Councillor Michael Barnbrook are on to it too.
It is of course the same old story rehashed. Three jobs Sawyer is the theme. Part-time office manager for his Government Minister wife, consultant for Nasdaq and chasing motorists in Bexley.
The former Chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life says the Nasdaq job should definitely have been declared while Alex Sawyer and the present Parliamentary Commission for Standards have said the rules are only for guidance. The present Parliamentary Commissioner has quite a record for protecting MPs from the public rather than the reverse.
Councillor Barnbrook who is something of an expert in bring down MPs (17 so far) is going to put the Commissioner to the test, he is right now drafting a formal letter of complaint about both of them.
