The SNP’s Angus Robertson stunned the House of Commons today after asking Cameron about police investigation into Tory election expenses, even as Cameron criticised other countries for corruption.
Seeing as the Prime Mininster is prepared to lecture other countries on corruption and probity, could be explain why seven police forces have launched criminal investigations into Conservative MPs for potential electoral fraud?
The Prime Mininster didn’t really know how to respond.
After initially waffling about how no country was perfect on corruption.
As for the issue of what he says about the electoral commission… The whole point in this country is the Electoral Commission is independent and when it comes to operational decisions by a police force, they are independent too. That’s the hallmark of an uncorrupt country!
Up to 29 Conservative candidates are thought to have benefited from the ‘battle bus’ scheme, and further investigations are also rumoured.
Not an issue that’s going away for the Prime Minister
