More Tory sleaze about to hit the light of day.

Andrea (Loathsome) Leadsom is Financial Services Minister. Her sister is married to Jersey based offshore spiv Peter de Putron, a principal donor to the Tory Party and various right wing think tanks. It is illegal for Jersey companies to make donations to British political parties but the loopholes are many.
Top work by the Guardian here. Leadsom claims she knows nothing about her brother in law's political donations. Before taking up her government post Andrea Leadsom was Managing Director of De Putron Fund Management. Some say that the family have bought their way into positions of power. No, surely not! And these are the people who worry about the lack of democracy in union strike ballots.
