The scale of Fox's defiance of Whitehall rules was laid bare yesterday evening when it emerged that he had blocked civil servants attending key meetings alongside Adam Werritty, failed to tell his permanent secretary that he had solicited funds to bankroll his close friend, and ignored private office requests to distance himself from the relationship.

The O'Donnell report says -

Quote:
Ministers must ensure that no conflict arises or could reasonably perceived to arise -


This report only looks at the Ministerial Code, and only from the lofty perch of O'Donnell. I think the public will see it differently. To be frank this member of the public thinks that even though no money changed hands there was a huge amount of conflict of interest. One can only assume the likes of Fox and Werrity see themselves as above and beyond the opinions of the little people.

Perhaps the reason why Cameron did not see the flaws, though, is because he shares them. And that is worrying
.

A number of phrases come to mind: No one is that stupid; there are none so blind as those who will not see; a useful idiot; follow the money.

You know, as we know, that as pompous, bone headed or gristle-brained as they may seem, no one capable of achieving high office in politics is that stupid and if their actions and utterances are beyond comprehension corruption, as in a large bung, or several, or undue influence from somewhere, is probably behind them.

Is there something you know that you're not telling us?

A good judge of character would not have picked Cameron to lead the Conservative party. But then all they want to do is get into government.

How very true. Damned on both counts ...

No the majority will say 'Liam who?' or 'There you go self serving politicians again. Told you so.' before returning their daily lives of struggle and hassle, courtesy of these political aliens.

This article and comments are most unfair to Dr. Fox. After all, did you know the chap is in the habit of wearing Union Jack cufflinks?

Well, that says it all!

Thanks due to the Mail's intrepid reporter, Dominic Lawson, for this vital information contained in one of his thoughtful dispatches direct from the Bubble.
